"Voyaging through strange seas of thought, alone ..." William Wordsworth

Wise.

Hammershøi, Søndermarken Park in Winter, 1896


WINTER TREES

All the complicated details
of the attiring and
the disattiring are completed!
A liquid moon
moves gently among
the long branches.
Thus having prepared their buds
against a sure winter
the wise trees
stand sleeping in the cold.

William Carlos Williams
