The Willow's Leaves (3 Word Challenge)

3 Word Challenge: Grace, Blessing, Daughter
Challenge words selected by Tim C.


Daughter, come and sit with me,
here, under the willow tree.
Rest right here upon the ground,
draw the golden branches round.

Though the days pass quickly now,
here below these weeping boughs,
for a moment time will wait,
giving space to contemplate.

You’ve brought Grace into my soul,
filled my heart and made me whole.
All the blessings I’ve received
far outnumber this tree’s leaves.

You are growing strong and wise,
every day, before my eyes.
Soon it’s you that I’ll look to –
I couldn’t be more proud of you.


**Send me any three (clean!) words, and I'll create a poem, short story or snippet with your words!**
