“Love Song”
I lie here thinking of you:—
the stain of love
is upon the world!
Yellow, yellow, yellow
it eats into the leaves,
smears with saffron
the horned branches that lean
heavily
against a smooth purple sky!
There is no light
only a honey-thick stain
that drips from leaf to leaf
and limb to limb
spoiling the colors
of the whole world—
you far off there under
the wine-red selvage of the west!
William Carlos Williams

WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS,THE AMERICAN POET,NOVELIST AND ESSAYIST,WAS BORN THIS DAY !

William Carlos
Williams was born on september 17 in 1883 in Rutherford,New Jersey.

He was raised there till his schooling and thereafter went to Zeneva And Paris For Further Studies.He eventually got his doctorate from the revered Pennsylvania University In Medical Sciences And Became A Doctor -a profession that he maintained till the end.
He used to write during nights and practice during the day.
Bothways He Got A Fair Amount Of Success And Fame!

William Carlos Williams Started His Poetry-Writing Under The Influence Of Imagists like Ezra Pound,but,later on he had developed his distinctive style and diction.

He was a great innovator and had a rather great faith plus likings for the local american Idioms and in this respect he was matchless as he sort of cultivated plus furthered american dictions and freed american poetry from the English Influences That Were A Great Fashion During Those Days!
Poetry For Williams Was All About Local Colors And Tastes !

‘THE RED WHEELBARROW’ ,a poem by Williams,is a must in any poetry anthology .It is his most popular poem.

‘PATERSON’ -A five volumes epic remains his best work.It centers around the lives and ambience of the New Jersey Town By The Same Name,Paterson.This Epic Is Highly Rich In Its Details And Conversational Tone.

‘SPRING AND ALL’ Is His Another Masterpiece.

William Carlos Williams Along With Walter Stevens And Their Protege,The Beat Poets, Have Greatly Shaped And Reshaped The American Literature,especially,American Poetry Of The Last Century!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY,WILLIAM CARLOS WILLIAMS !
