Read introduction

An English tree that graces damp places like the river bank.

Weeping Willow.

Peace lies
along the river bank
sit quietly
under a crack willow
her bark
is coarse and craggy
leaves hang
fringing the river
in cool shade
draped all round you
wafting gently
in the summer breeze
inhale deeply
the damp and earthy aroma
electric blue damselfly
flit in the reeds
rise to take a fly
dive to take a fish
lose self
at One with mother nature
Britain's most elegant tree.
