  • Willow and GinkgoBy Eve Merriam

    The willow is like an etching,Fine-lined against the sky.The ginkgo is like a crude sketch,Hardly worthy to be signed.The willows music is like a soprano,Delicate and thin.The ginkgos tune is like a chorusWith everyone joining in.The willow is sleek as a velvet-nosed calf;The ginkgo is leathery as an old bull.The willows branches are like silken thread;The ginkgos like stubby rough wool.
