On the Street: William Carlos Williams, “Poem”

william carlos williams

On the sidewalk of East 41st Street between Park Avenue and Fifth Avenue, otherwise known as “Library Way.”

The rose fades
and is renewed again
by its seed, naturally
but where

save in the poem
shall it go
to suffer no diminution
of its splendor

         — William Carlos Williams
