The Wedding Dance In The Open Air - Poem by William Carlos Williams

Disciplined by the artist
to go round
and round

in holiday gear
a riotously gay rabble of
peasants and their

ample-bottomed doxies
the market square

featured by the women in
their starched
white headgear

they prance or go openly
toward the wood's

round and around in
rough shoes and
farm breeches

mouths agape
Oya !
kicking up their heels
