Daily Poem – For Viola: De Gustibus

June 28, 2014

Beloved you are
Caviar of Caviar
Of all I love you best
O my Japanese bird nest

No herring from Norway
Can touch you for flavor. Nay
Pimento itself
is flat as an empty shelf
When compared to your piquancy
O quince of my despondency.

William Carlos Williams
