The Red Wheelbarrow by William Carlos Williams

The Red Wheelbarrow

so much depends
upon

a red wheel
barrow

glazed with rain
water

beside the white
chickens




-William Carlos Williams





















This image was part of the Free Verse competition held by the Academy of American Poets last year. Here are the details: 





Inspired by the 2009 National Poetry Month poster design, the Academy for American Poets invites people to capture ephemeral bits of verse on film. Write favorite lines on a sandy beach, assemble twigs on a hillside, or chalk the sidewalk. Take a photo before the lines disappear, then post the image to the Academy's Free Verse photo album on Facebook, the Free Verse group page on Flickr and share them with everyone! This year, poets.org is selling note cards with these poetic images on them! 10 for only $5.95!
