William Carlos Williams

From “Broken Windows”

I HAVE had my dream—like others—

And it has come to nothing, so that

I remain now carelessly

With feet planted on the ground,

And look up at the sky—

Feeling my clothes about me,

The weight of my body in my shoes,

The rim of my hat, air passing in and out

At my nose—and decide to dream no more.
