A Sort Of A Song

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,
Sleepless.
-through metaphor to reconcile
The people and the stones.
Compose. (No ideas
But in things) Invent!
Saxifrage is my flower that splits
The rocks.



Poem A Sort Of A Song - William Carlos Williams
