  • Paul's Corner: Poem

    The Collected Poems of William Carlos Williams: 1909-1939 William Carlos Williams

    Poem [on getting a card]

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

    with whom I differ
    the modern poetic

    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
    which delight me

    -- William Carlos Williams

  • Happy Birthday to Paul's Grandson Sam!

    Among the rain 
    and lights 
    I saw the figure 5 
    in gold 
    on a red 
    to gong clangs 
    siren howls 
    and wheels rumbling 
    through the dark city.

    Sam's 5th Birthday December 13, 2015
