A Poem (and a Photograph)


(Editor’s Note: This poem and photograph were first publish in November of last year. Given what I see outside my window, it is still appropriate to repost. Enjoy)

Central Park in Winter

Winter Trees


All the complicated details

of the attiring and

the disattiring are completed!

A liquid moon

moves gently among

the long branches.

Thus having prepared their buds

against a sure winter

the wise trees

stand sleeping in the cold.


—William Carlos William
