Old Willows

Craig W. Steele

The willow which bends to the tempest,
often escapes better than the oak which resists it…
-- Albert Schweitzer

Old willows on the creek bank, bent
from weathering a callous wind,
trail streamers in the flow — content
old willows. On the creek bank, bent
with age, misshapen roots consent
to animate their stand. Rough-skinned
old willows on the creek bank, bent—
forever weathering the wind.
