Treasure Island

William Carlos Williams

(17 September 1883 – 4 March 1963 / New Jersey)

Memory of April


You say love is this, love is that:
Poplar tassels, willow tendrils
the wind and the rain comb,
tinkle and drip, tinkle and drip--
branches drifting apart. Hagh!
Love has not even visited this country.

    I think what William's meant by this is if you've never felt love, then you don't know what's so great about it. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
