William Carlos Williams - Blizzard

Snow falls:
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.

This poem will soon be used as the starting point of carved tile images, along the lines of an Arthur Osborne carving with subtle hints at enormous depth.
