WILLOW
[ Also see Trees ]

We hanged our harps upon the willows in the midst thereof.
      - Bible, Psalms (ch. CXXXVII, v. 2)

Tree of the gloom, o'erhanging the tomb,
  Thou seem'st to love the churchyard sod;
    Thou ever art found on the charnel ground,
      Where the laughing and happy have rarely trod.
        When thy branches trail to the wintry gale,
          Thy wailing is sad to the hearts of men;
            When the world is bright in a summer's light,
              'Tis only the wretched that love thee then.
                The golden moth and the shining bee
                  Will seldom rest on the Willow-tree.
      - Eliza Cook

I'll hang my harp on a willow tree.
      - Lord John Elphinstone,
        also credited to Thomas Haynes Bayly

Willow, in thy breezy moan,
  I can hear a deeper tone;
    Through thy leaves come whispering low,
      Faint sweet sound of long ago--
        Willow, sighing willow!
      - Mrs. Felicia D. Hemans, Willow Song

All a green willow, willow,
  All a green willow is my garland.
      - John Heywood, The Green Willow

The willow hangs with sheltering grace
  And benediction o'er their sod,
    And Nature, hushed, assures the soul
      They rest in God.
      - Crammond Kennedy, Greenwood Cemetery

Near the lake where drooped the willow,
  Long time ago.
      - George Pope Morris, Near the Lake

Know ye the willow-tree,
  Whose grey leaves quiver,
    Whispering gloomily
      To yon pale river?
        Lady at even-tide
          Wander not near it:
            They say its branches hide
              A sad, lost spirit!
      - William Makepeace Thackeray,
        The Willow-Tree
