    the whole sea become an entanglement of watery bodies
    lost to the world bearing what they cannot hold. Broken,

    beaten, desolate, reaching from the dead to be taken up
    they cry out, failing, failing! their cries rising
    in waves still as the skillful yachts pass over.
    William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)

    Forgive me
    they were delicious
    so sweet
    and so cold.
    William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)

    One by one objects are defined—
    It quickens: clarity, outline of leaf

    But now the stark dignity of
    entrance—Still, the profound change
    has come upon them: rooted, they
    grip down and begin to awaken
    —William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)

    These are the desolate, dark weeks
    when nature in its barrenness
    equals the stupidity of man.
    —William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)

    I saw the figure 5
    in gold

    on a red
    firetruck
    —William Carlos Williams (1883–1963)
