Would I that it were a willow

The title refers to the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree. I walked around there a little, anyway, "by myself" though I was surrounded by thousands of people. I thought of trying for a perfect picture, but tonight there was no colored lighting to highlight the Prometheus sculpture.

Whisper to the wind and say that love has sinned
Left my heart a-breaking, and making a moan
Murmur to the night to hide its starry light
So none will see me sighing and crying all alone

Weeping willow tree
Weep in sympathy
Bend your branches down along the ground and cover me
When the shadows fall, hear me willow and weep for me

Sinatra was passable. I like Chad and Jeremy's rendition best.
