Winter Trees

“A liquid moon moves gently among the long branches.
Having thus prepared their buds against a sure winter
the wise trees stand sleeping in the cold.”

This quotation is from ‘Winter Trees’ by William Carlos Williams

      Yes I found the quote elsewhere, used it then looked up the poem, which is not in my collection of his verse. Lovely poem indeed.

    While walking back from a small restaurant the other evening I saw the crescent moon – not to many trees in a city… but I think city trees can be smart to 😉
    Especially in dealing with all the traffic… I saw several folks walking dogs. I wonder if the dogs ‘train’ themselves to wait for the park or if in fact the owners do clean up? I did see that their was an attempt to keep the city clean even in winter.

    William Carlos Williams 😀 Not making fun of him (I actually don’t know who he is) or anything, I just think it’s a funny name.
