William Carlos Williams

Here you will find the Poem Light Hearted William of poet William Carlos Williams

Light Hearted William

Light hearted William twirled 
his November moustaches 
and, half dressed, looked 
from the bedroom window 
upon the spring weather. 

Heigh-ya! sighed he gaily 
leaning out to see 
up and down the street 
where a heavy sunlight 
lay beyond some blue shadows. 

Into the room he drew 
his head again and laughed 
to himself quietly 
twirling his green moustaches.
