William Carlos Williams

17 September 1883 – 4 March 1963 / New Jersey

For Viola: De Gustibus

Beloved you are
Caviar of Caviar
Of all I love you best
O my Japanese bird nest
No herring from Norway
Can touch you for flavor. Nay
Pimento itself
is flat as an empty shelf
When compared to your piquancy
O quince of my despondency.
