    I just wrote a poem about a willow tree and someone suggested I had maybe borrowed the idea and said the poets name she thought I was borrowing from.I didnt I wrote about a tree I loved as a child that has been cut down. In trying to find the poet I stumbled on your poem. It's lovely and truthful, my tree was a weeping willow and I said 'I wept for it because it wept for me' oddly you pine for your pine. Nice poem.

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
