Poet’s Corner-May 13, 2022
Every Friday, James Blevins, this newspaper’s in-house reporter and poet—who has seen his work previously published in “Salt Hill Journal,” “Pretty Owl Poetry,” “Stoneboat Journal,” “Mud Season Review” and “AZURE,” as well as numerous other outlets both online and in print—chooses one poem for publication.
Additionally, Blevins will share a poem of his own, just for good measure, at the end of each calendar month.
By William Carlos Williams
So different, this man
And this woman:
A stream flowing
In a field.
William Carlos Williams was born in Rutherford, New Jersey, in 1883. The poet, novelist, essayist and playwright is often said to have been one of the principal poets of the imagist movement. His major works include “Spring and All” (1923); “Pictures from Brueghel and Other Poems” (1962), which was awarded the Pulitzer Prize; the five-volume epic “Paterson” (1963, 1992); and “Imaginations” (1970). Williams died in 1963.
