Images Of What Was


A willow stands near water
head slightly tilted
staring into the blue

the wind whispers a name
someones face appears
fresh and alluring

reflections of yesterday
soaking in it's beauty
images of what was but
is no more.

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
