Blue Willow World - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

The sky is ever azure
no cloud dare mar its view
as shepherds gather flowers
sweet maids to win and woo

The grass is soft as velvet
no brambles, thistles there
fair muses chants soon mingle
with birdsong in midair

I'll sit beneath the willows
and watch their weeping cease
as hot tears turn to diamonds
and sorrow finds release

My world is called blue willow
an ancient, timeless place
A dell beside a river
where hope and love embrace.
