Weeping Willow’s Song



This is my personal interpretation of why the willow tree weeps. Enjoy this poem and ponder the possibility that it may be true. Although there is no actual proof it is believed that willow branches were used to whip Christ.

Willow sighed as her branches cut 39 lashes into his flesh

And trembled when blood ran from His crown of thorns

As His hands and feet were being nailed to the cross

She bent ever so slightly and began to mourn

When He cried "It is finished" and gave up His life

The tree fell forward because of His suffering and pain

Willow will continue to bow low and weep

Until the day He returns to the earth again
