To Waken An Old Lady

Written by: William Carlos (WCW) Williams | Biography
 | Quotes (28) |
 Old age is
a flight of small
cheeping birds
skimming
bare trees
above a snow glaze.
Gaining and failing they are buffeted by a dark wind— But what? On harsh weedstalks the flock has rested— the snow is covered with broken seed husks and the wind tempered with a shrill piping of plenty.
