One of my Mother's favourite places, the Isabella Plantation in Richmond park.

She died 2 years ago today. We miss her.

There's a poem here, Cees Buddingh I think, about the willow tree being hopelessly in love with the pond, has the line ". . . and where she kisses him, he dies"
i'll look it up for you.

De oude beuk is verliefd op de vijver
bevend strekt hij de stramme armen over haar neer
en schoon is zijn gebaar
van eerbiedig verlangen
en van breden ernst
zij is diep en zwart
waar zij hem kust sterft hij

J.C. van Schagen

(so, it's a Beech tree, not a Willow and by van Schagen, not Buddingh. But hey, not far off)
I'll try and do you a translation, bear with me, 19th century Dutch poetry isn't the easiest to translate.

The old Beech tree is in love with the pond
he stretches his stiff and trembling arms over her
his gesture is pure
with respectful desire
and is deeply serious
she is deep and black
where she kisses him he dies
