Monday's Riddle: Deciduously Mysterious...

Hello, Riddlers! Can you guess our theme this week? I had a harrowing experience with one when I moved into the Begonia House. ; ) ~ F

Born deciduous with a lengthy reach. I've been used as a crop or a quick way to teach. Mysteriously elegant, I sway with the wind. I'm loved by romantics and can hide those who've sinned. Leaves a plenty, and the healing kind. My archetype is carried with compassion in mind. Painted in pictures, drawn onto the scene. I'll always invoke that which is dream.

What am I? Stop by Wednesday for the answer.

I gave you a clue!


Clue: I am in this picture. 
(*On a side note- while looking for this picture as the clue, I had to go into an old post- if you're in the mood for a little magic today click here. Tee hee. ;)

  6. I'm with everyone else in thinking Weeping Willow, but I'm curious about the line about the archetype being carried with compassion in mind.
    Fun riddle!

  23. Everyone is guessing weeping willow but I thought it was a stick from the sound of the riddle, so I am just gonna have to go with that instead even if I am wrong :P

  24. Hi Jess - I think I could have got this one if I'd looked when you first posted, but I thought I'd have to get my head into gear for some lateral thinking - but no - I could have picked up my cricket bat (which I don't have) and hit some willow.

    It's a great tree so varied ... cheers Hilary
