Summer Song

by William Carlos Williams

Wanderer moon
smiling a
faintly ironical smile
at this
brilliant, dew-moistened
summer morning,—
a detached
sleepily indifferent
smile, a
wanderer's smile,—
if I should
buy a shirt
your color and
put on a necktie
where would they carry me?

please note: art by Dale Hueppchen


  1. A necktie sky blue, where would they carry me?

    Very good question...

    Perhaps somewhere like what can be seen in the lovely film : Tengri le Bleu du Ciel, which takes place in the mountains of Khyrgistan, Tengri being the word for the infinite in the local dialect...

  2. Beautiful....both words and image....smiles.


Hey, thanks for your thoughts and your time:>)
