Treasure Island

William Carlos Williams

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

Thursday


I have had my dream--like others--
and it has come to nothing, so that
I remain now carelessly
with feet planted on the ground
and look up at the sky--
feeling my clothes about me,
the weight of my body in my shoes,
the rim of my hat, air passing in and out
at my nose--and decide to dream no more.

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
