Summer Song / William Carlos Williams

Summer Song

Wanderer moon
smiling a
faintly ironical smile
at this
brilliant, dew-moistened
summer morning,
a detached
sleepily indifferent
smile, a
wanderer s smile,
if I should
buy a shirt
your color and
put on a necktie
sky blue
where would they carry me?

William Carlos Williams (1883-1963)
from A Book of Poems: Al que quiere!, 1917
