    I believe it is great to know who you really are, hence i am heading straight to my ambition. I also compose poems, but this has created a positive impact in my career. Your correspondence will be highly appreciated.

    Have a nice day!

    How fascinating is the way images capture your mind, like a painting, a journey through the images...

    William Carlos Williams in his poem: 'A Sort of a Song' gives us a real
    'ARS POETICA'.A motto for all of us: 'and the writing be of words' and an ideal:
    'Compose. (No ideas but in things) Invent! '

  • Seán O' Muiriosa (7/12/2006 5:45:00 PM)

    I think what Carlos Williams does with form is exceptional and something truely brilliant.

Best Poem of William Carlos Williams

A Sort Of A Song

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

The Great Figure

Among the rain
and lights
I saw the figure 5
in gold
on a red
to gong clangs
siren howls
and wheels rumbling
through the dark city.
