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
sky-blue
where would they carry me?

  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...
