Treasure Island

William Carlos Williams

(17 September 1883 – 4 March 1963 / New Jersey)

Approach of Winter


The half-stripped trees
struck by a wind together,
bending all,
the leaves flutter drily
and refuse to let go
or driven like hail
stream bitterly out to one side
and fall
where the salvias, hard carmine--
like no leaf that ever was--
edge the bare garden.

But if it had to perish twice,
