Friday Poetry at Ungodly Hours: William Carlos Williams

William Carlos Williams
The Red Wheelbarrow

so much depends
upon

a red wheel
barrow

glazed with rain
water

beside the white
chickens

Connor Loughridge, one of my favorite songwriters, does translations of english language poetry into his version of the english language. His translation of this poem showed up on the Moves Like Sparrows album as "butterfly". and it is one of my most favorite songs.

You know, I've refrained from whining as long as I possibly can, but please give me some Friday Poetry!

I need it, man, I need it bad!
