Will it get the luxury of choice?

Sunday Whirligig given words:
bough tree woodlands snow bloom springs 
hung wearing  roam again seventy cherry 

3WW given words
wander complete astonished

Horizontal bough of a tree
In magnificent submission
Safe in its grasp
It is not to wander the woodlands 
but in complete compliance

Through the season's snows
and the blooms of spring
its freedom curtailed

Its head hung low and patience
wearing thin but it has
designs to roam again

And that astonished everyone!

Going on to seventy and
no more cherry pink
Will it get the luxury of choice?

  1. Sometimes we just want to roam no matter how weathered we are.

  2. Probably not, Hank. Most places/states here in the U.S. making that choice, to die, is a crime.

  3. I haven't heard of Sunday Whirligig—lots of words to keep track of and integrate! I certainly like Three Word Wednesday and where you went with both prompting challenges!
