Poetry Friday: William Carlos Williams

Head on over to Jama’s Alphabet Soup for the Poetry Friday round-up.

So today, I promise a Carole Boston Weatherford poem.  It hasn’t arrived.  This morning however, I read a post at The Nerdy Book Club and the poem Ruth Ayres resonated with me:

It is difficult

to get the news from poems,

yet men die miserably every day

for lack

of what is found there.

—William Carlos Williams

Ruth Ayres has a new book, Celebrating authors. She talks about it at The Nerdy Book Club.

Happy Friday.

Happy Reading.
