Poems based on “The Red Wheelbarrow” and “This is Just to Say”by William Carlos Williams

by Jonathan Kraft


So much depends on

What they are
Is what you become

Whose support is
always wanted; sometimes needed

That are told things
that others do not know

Choosing to do right
in the face of wrong

This is Just to Say
I have borrowed
the change
that was on
your dresser
and which
you were probably
for an emergency.

Forgive me
I needed it
to make a phone call
to Mom and Dad
