Blizzard by William Carlos Williams









Blizzard
By William Carlos Williams 

Snow:

years of anger following

hours that float idly down—

the blizzard

drifts its weight

deeper and deeper for three days

or sixty years, eh? Then

the sun! a clutter of

yellow and blue flakes—

Hairy looking trees stand out

in long alleys

over a wild solitude.

The man turns and there—

his solitary track stretched out

upon the world.
