Poem for 30 April 2005: The Red Wheelbarrow

April 30th, 2005
 

A bookend for the end of the month: another poem that I understand much better now than when I first read it:

The Red Wheelbarrow
William Carlos Williams

so much depends
upon

a red wheel
barrow

glazed with rain
water

beside the white
chickens.

One way to observe National Poetry Month is to start a poetry reading group.
