William Carlos Williams was born in 1883.He is one of my favourite poets and do make an effort to read more about him and more poems if you click on the link. On my blog you will also find "This is just to say"...too. Enjoy!



The Great Figure
by
William Carlos Williams

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