Under the Willow Tree
by Michael Corso
In 1940’s Manhattan, Jessie and Matt sat under the willow tree in Central Park. A refuge from daily life, they spent many long hours beneath its boughs. When Matt learns Jessie will be moving away, he invites her to meet him one last time at the willow tree, but Jessie never came. It wouldn’t be until many years later when she discovers what truly happened that night.
