William Carlos Williams: "Nantucket"

Flowers through the window
lavender and yellow

changed by white curtains—
Smell of cleanliness—

Sunshine of late afternoon—
On the glass tray

a glass pitcher, the tumbler
turned down, by which

a key is lying—And the
immaculate white bed

"Nantucket" by William Carlos Williams, from William Carlos Williams: Selected Poems, edited by Robert Pinsky. © Library of America, 2004.
