Under The Laburnum Tree - Poem by Valerie Dohren

(A simple tale)

Under the Laburnum tree
She saw his gentle face
Under the Laburnum tree
She knew their first embrace

Under the Laburnum tree
She gave to him her love
Under the Laburnum tree
Beneath the stars above

Under the Laburnum tree
He left her there to cry
Under the Laburnum tree
That`s where she chose to die

(Under the Laburnum tree
Were scattered all its seeds
Under the Laburnum tree
Amongst the growing weeds)

Under the Laburnum tree
The moon was shining bright
Under the Laburnum tree
Her silv`ry soul took flight

Under the Laburnum tree
At last she was set free
Under the Laburnum tree
She found eternity

    Unrequited love, sad but released to hopefully the sanctuary of a more loving garden. A lovely poem. Which species of Laburnum, L chinese? (Report) Reply

    This probably sounds nuts, but I just sang this lovely poem to myself. Someone should write a beautiful melody to accompany it. (Report) Reply
