Poetry Friday: Metric Figure by William Carlos Williams

November 14th, 2014 (06:00 am)

Current Mood: artistic
Current Song: Line of Fire by The Veronicas

There is a bird in the poplars-
It is the sun!
The leaves are little yellow fish
Swimming in the river;
The bird skims above them-
Day is on his wings.
It is he that is making
The great gleam among the poplars.
It is his singing
Outshines the noise
Of leaves clashing in the wind.

- Metric Figure by William Carlos Williams
