Winter Trees

Just before the winter sun sets over the Little Union Canal.
Eagle, Idaho

Winter Trees

All the complicated details
 of the attiring and
 the disattiring are completed!
 A liquid moon
 moves gently among
 the long branches.
 Thus having prepared their buds
 against a sure winter
 the wise trees
 stand sleeping in the cold.

William Carlos Williams
