‘NEATH THE WILLOW TREE

By

Robert Hewett Sr.

I saw you sitting there, ‘neath the willow tree.

The still waters of the pond, like a mirror

in the sun, reflecting back in time

to happier days in your mind.

A book of poems was in your hands,

but your mind was in distant lands,

searching for words to ease your pain.

An image of a happy moment long ago

brings a smile and a twinkle in your eye.

Looking into the mirror in the pond

reflecting back in time to a younger day,

when love bloomed with flowers in the sun,

brought to life by the mirror in the pond.

If I could write words like the ones in your book

I would fill your heart with love and joy.

Songs of love never lost, new each day, and

there for you even at that distant sunset.

Reflections in the mirror in the pond

would form images of happy days and times.

If my words could make you turn each page,

with thoughts of love and contented ways,

I would be blessed and you know the rest.

Read, fair lady, and let your mind float.

There in pages never lost in time

find the words to fill your lonely mind.

with dreams of times gone by.

      Memories are such a joy, they do bring a smile and warm feelings of a time so long ago it seems now. Still, I hold mine dear to my heart and so many returned after reading your lovely poem Robert. Thank you for the journey back in time. Take care always, Lee

      I remember the good old days of reading outside, enjoying nature.. before internet and hub pages. There is a beautiful lamenting tone to your poem. Gorgeous!
