The Red Wheelbarrow


so much depends
upon
a red wheel
barrow
glazed with rain
water
beside the white
chickens.
William Carlos Williams

This is Just to Say


I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox
and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast
Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold
William Carlos Williams

In a Station of the
Metro

The apparition of these faces in the


crowd; Petals on a wet, black bough.
Ezra Pound

Morning at the Window

They are rattling breakfast plates in basement kitchens,


And along the trampled edges of the street I am aware of
the damp souls of housemaids sprouting despondently at
area gates. The brown waves of fog toss up to me .
Twisted faces from the bottom of the street, And tear
from a passer-by with muddy skirts. An aimless smile that
hovers in the air and vanishes along the level of the roofs.
T.S Eliot

The City
In the morning the city
Spreads its wings
Making a song
In stone that sings.
In the evening the city
Goes to bed
Hanging lights
Above its head.
Langston Hughes

The Toaster
A silver-scaled dragon with jaws
flaming red
Sits at my elbow and toasts my
bread.
I hand him fat slices, and then, one
by one,
He hands them back when he sees
they are done.
William Jay Smith
