The Red Wheelbarrow

You can't just read this poem - you have to close your eyes and FEEL it. It's simplicity at its absolute best - why does he start with the words - 'so much depends upon'?
Maybe William Carlos Williams knew the secret to happiness. That if you stop once in a while, smell the air, notice the colours around you, watch nature going about it's unhurried business; let all else melt away until the snapshot of life in front of you is all that remains - the pure revelation of joy is all the perspective you need...its perfect!

The Red Wheelbarrow
by William Carlos Williams

so much depends

a red wheel

glazed with rain

beside the white
