William Carlos Williams: The Rewaking

In the spirit of belated Valentine's Day and spring around the corner (please?), here's a William Carlos Williams poem Kevin and I included on our wedding invitation just about ten years ago.

The Rewaking
William Carlos Williams 

Sooner or later
we must come to the end
of striving

to re-establish
the image the image of
the rose

but not yet
you say extending the
time indefinitely

your love until a whole

the violet to the very

and so by
your love the very sun
itself is revived
