    I had to google to be sure I had it, since I don’t have it memorized. Excellent chickens.

    THe Red Wheelbarrow – William Carlos Williams. sometime around 1920 (I’m too lazy to go look it up :)) Quite likely his best work it combines simplicity with vibrant imagery. (I was an English major and WCW is a long time favorite of mine)

    I had to google because I forgot about the chickens (honestly was wondering what ducks had to do with it). Really he could have left the chickens out. Such a wordy guy.

    Interesting that our daughter, Nora, also bore the descriptive title “the Small Human” as well – in fact, still does on occasion, despite being significantly less small than she used to be.
