Yeo2xF Informative, but not convincing. Something is missing but what I can
not understand. But I will say frankly: bright and benevolent thoughts!...

The Red Wheelbarrow

Because poetry is all about the interactive thoughts of the reader and the
'drawing' ability of the writer, every interpretation is valid. I would
like to point out the use of the word "depend" in the first line & how man
(wheelbarrow)is inter-dependent on nature (chicken & rain and soil). The
inter-dependency of all living things represent a cycle of existence. Why
red & white? Red would be the bolder, more vibrant color of roosters and
white, the symbol of innocence & purity (the chicken). Masculinity &
Femininity are also inter-dependent for the existence/continuation of life.
The concept 'wheel' is different than the concept of 'barrow'...likewise
the concept of 'rain' and 'water'. The words themselves depend on each
other to complete the full thought. Williams has 'drawn' a simplistic
rural scene that serves to point out our responsibilities, humility, and
understanding of our existence in the natural world.
