Love Song

The recent change in the weather (warm sun! cool breeze!) makes me think of this poem by William Carlos Williams. To me, it is a poem to be read in the spring.  My spirit exults similarly when I walk around in the sun these days.

Love Song

Sweep the house clean,
hang fresh curtains
in the windows
put on a new dress
and come with me!

The elm is scattering
its little loaves
of sweet smells
from a white sky!

Who shall hear of us
in the time to come?
Let him say there was
a burst of fragrance
from black branches.

William Carlos Williams

The exchange of ideas is a key part of the human experience, don't you think? I would love to hear from you.
