William Carlos Williams (17 September 1883 – 4 March 1963 / New Jersey)
Approach of Winter
The half-stripped trees
struck by a wind together,
the leaves flutter drily
and refuse to let go
or driven like hail
stream bitterly out to one side
where the salvias, hard carmine--
like no leaf that ever was--
edge the bare garden.
