Summary

My grandmother once told me: If you have Want in one hand and Wish in the other, you have nothing but empty hands; I guess this poem says that. --- This poem was inspired by the Cover Photo. Now the artist has more to tell about their wonderful and imaginative work.

There once was a woman

Whose name was Willow

And everything she needed 

Was close at hand

Then one day she met a man

His name was Want

But much of what he took

Turned to sand

 

Willow was not happy

Once she met him

And what she had

Was not valued anymore.

She wanted Want

So Contentment slipped away

And Obsession came knocking

At her door

 

She sold her need

For whatever she could get

Then Obsession

Became payment for Desire

She went to Want

Thinking he would love her

But all he ever feels

Is Passion's fire

 

In the Morning

He walked away with Wish

For both are just as fleeting

As can be

Then Willow wept

And wept for many years

Her sorrow changed her

Into a Willow Tree

 

Now Weeping Willows weep

In her memory

They bear the sadness

That their lonely mother felt

They hang their branches

In the form of a veil

Or some may see a candle

Soon to melt.
