A Sort Of A Song

Rating: 3.0
Let the snake wait under
his weed
and the writing
be of words, slow and quick, sharp
to strike, quiet to wait,
sleepless.
-- through metaphor to reconcile
the people and the stones.
Compose. (No ideas
but in things) Invent!
Saxifrage is my flower that splits
the rocks.

My favorite poem by Williams is The Red Wheelbarrow and my other favorite another short one. And I like this one which expresses his approach to poet-craft, surprises (but logically ends) with his reference to saxifrage, and is good advice for us. -GK

Uniquely build a construction for poetic beauty to be exposed by words. Super is the idea of knitting a net with brilliance and emotion together. Great indeed. Thanks to PH for putting the drop to meet our thirst. Pranab k c 03/05/2018
