    Poem of the month:




    years of anger following
    hours that float idly down —
    the blizzard
    drifts its weight
    deeper and deeper for three days
    or sixty years, eh? Then
    the sun! a clutter of
    yellow and blue flakes —
    Hairy looking trees stand out
    in long alleys
    over a wild solitude.
    The man turns and there —
    his solitary track stretched out
    upon the world.

                                                                  ——William Carlos Williams
