William Carlos Williams

Here you will find the Poem Love Song of poet William Carlos Williams

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 branched the lean
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!
