POEM 

[on getting a card]

on getting a card
long delayed
from a poet whom I love
but

with whom I differ
touching
the modern poetic
technique

I was much moved 
to hear
from him if
as yet he does not

concede my point
nor is he
indeed conscious of it
no matter

his style
has other outstanding
virtues
which delight me

-- William Carlos Williams from The Collected Poems of William Carlos Williams, Vol. 2: 1909-1939
