In a Station of the Metro

The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.

~ Ezra Pound

Who knew that such a short poem would provoke such intense response? Poor William Carlos Williams; they're reading his poetry tonight. :-) I am learning after three years of teaching that though my prep time may not be as overwhelming, I will most likely never be able to anticipate student response from year to year.
