THE BIRDS by William Carlos Williams









THE BIRDS

by William Carlos Williams


The world begins again!

Not wholly insufflated

the blackbirds in the rain

upon the dead top branches

of the living tree,

stuck fast to the low clouds,

notate the dawn.

Their shrill cries sound

announcing appetite

and drop among the bending roses

and the dripping grass.
