Featured Poem: A Sort of a Song

A Sort of a Song by William Carlos Williams

Let the snake wait under

his weed

and the writhing

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.
