lyrics

I'm but a willow,
gilded in dew
waiting for morning
to make its way through
and I am the shelter,
a loving embrace
repelling the breeze
of malevolent days

I'm a vernal votary, growing green fingers
as alms for the children in fall
I'm sallow with sorrow, come autumn;
tomorrow those fingers will answer the call
I'll cast them away, a selfish relinquishment
bound in my seasonal oath
I'll again be the vigilant mother,
another fresh April enticing my growth

I'm but a willow
of billowing jade,
swallowing sunlight
to shroud earth in shade
and I am the mellow,
the meadow's sole pride,
the refuge awaiting
in each spring's reprise
