First Line: Once when I looked at willows, I would say
Last Line: Seems fanciful and beutiful enough for me.
Alternate Author Name(s): Shearer, Harold H., Mrs.
Subject(s): Willow Trees


Once when I looked at willows, I would say,
"Thin-fingered women are underneath that hair!"
Or, at the close of a quieter day,
A flock of tall birds would seem standing there
On single legs, heads tucked in for the night
Under gray-green plumage --
"Willow, willow is the note
If roots turn claws, and boughs go up in flight!"
Or, "A river-woman with a long white throat
Will come if I call 'Willow!'"
So I would say
When I looked at the willows once -- But today,
The actual willow, the fact of a tree
Seems fanciful and beutiful enough for me.
