Election Day. Poem By William Carlos Williams.

November 4, 2008
Election Day
from The Collected Poems, Volume II, 1939-1962 by William Carlos Williams

Warm sun, quiet air
an old man sits  

in the doorway of
a broken house–

boards for windows
plaster falling

from between the stones
and strokes the head

of a spotted dog
