“To Freight Cars in the Air”

Old yellow freight car. Nothing special. Always at the same place and frozen in time.

I learned today about William Carlos Williams, a poet and a physician. His primary occupation was a family doctor but he also succeeded as a poet. He practiced medicine in day time and wrote his poems at night.

Here is one of his poems “To Freight Cars in the Air” from the series “The Decent Winter”.

William Carlos Williams ( 1883-1963)
