Nantucket by William Carlos Williams

Mr. Williams employs great economy to describe looking out a bedroom window
on a summer day. He compares the relative sterile bedroom separated from
the colorful nature just outside the window. Glass of the window is both a
barrier keeping nature out and a means to allow the colors of the flowers
and the sunlight to enter. But in the bedroom, there is no color but the
white curtains and the bed. There is only a smell of cleanliness in the
room, perhaps an lack of any smell, or the smell of some antiseptic or
detergent in the air. The perfume of flowers do not enter the room. The
glass pitcher is probably empty and the tumbler must be empty as it is
upside down. The key expressed both that nature is locked out and yet
available if the key is used to unlock the door. The bedroom though
sterile, is a sanctuary. The bed is immaculate, pure and untouched. Not
sure that Mr. Williams means anything more than observing our relationship
with nature as somewhat removed, though not divorced.

William Carlos Williams was a medical doctor by profession, a poet by in-
nate talents. "Nantucket" fits the structure and emotion of many of his
poems: images, above all, capture a mood. One need not ever have been to
Nantucket. Any seaside shore town would do to evoke a magic moment of a
summer day. Ah, beautiful.
