The Willow Tree


Come hear a wondrous tale,
Look closely and you'll see
The young boy's hiding spot
Underneath the willow tree

Come with a special mission,
Maybe with a cup of tea.
But, when you come to visit

You may never want to leave

Come see the gentle creatures
That will never hide or cower,
Come see the singing birds
With all the bees and all the flowers

The honey's always sweet,
And the milk is never sour,
And, best of all, there are no
Selfish laws or selfish towers

Come see the sturdy mountain
That will always stand so tall,
And, from the mountain comes the
Bright, blue gushing waterfall

The never-ending meadows
Without a single man-made wall,
And, looking in the distance,
All the lions seem so small

So, take a little journey,
With many things to see,
You need not fret or worry,
There is no cost or fee

Come hear a wondrous tale,
Look closely and you'll see
The young boy's hiding spot
Underneath the willow tree
