    With outstretched branches
    your love beckons me
    as I nestle under the warmth of thee
    amongst the cascading leaves of a willow tree
    the drooping leafy branches
    become a sheer curtain
    draping the springtime bounty of blossoms
    and butterflies replacing a winter we were uncertain
    would ever end, but it did
    and now our spirits our joyful
    and hopeful amid
    the scarlet red robins
    building nests
    and sudden brief showers
    as each hushed soul rests
    amongst the cascading leaves of a willow tree
    as I nestle underneath the warmth of thee
    your love beckons me
    with outstretched branches
