Featured Poem: The Rewaking

The Rewaking by William Carlos Williams

Sooner of later

we must come to the end

of striving

to re-establish

the image the image of

the rose

but not yet

you say extending the

time indefinitely

by

your love until a whole

spring

rekindle

the violet to the very

lady’s-slipper

and so by

your love the very sun

itself is revived
