Poem-a-Day

Dr. Braddlee, Dean at AN Learning & Technology Resources, contributed one of his favorite poems for the Poem-a-Day event. It is “The Great Figure” by William Carlos Williams (1883-1963). William was an American poet and a medical doctor. An American watercolorist, Charles Demuth ( 1883-1935) created a painting “I saw the Figure 5 in Gold”, using imaginary from William’s poem. The painting is available from the Metropolitan Museum Art: https://www.metmuseum.org/art/collection/search/488315

The Great Figure

By William Carlos Williams

Among the rain
and lights
I saw the figure 5
in gold
on a red
firetruck
moving
tense
unheeded
to gong clangs
siren howls
and wheels rumbling
through the dark city.

Thanks Dr. Braddlee. Enjoy and have a great week, everyone!
