Sour Grapes (1921)
William Carlos Williams

Light Hearted William

    Light hearted William twirled
    his November moustaches
    and, half dressed, looked
    from the bedroom window
    upon the spring weather.

    Heigh-ya! sighed he gaily
    leaning out to see
    up and down the street
    where a heavy sunlight
    lay beyond some blue shadows.

    Into the room he drew
    his head again and laughed
    to himself quietly
    twirling his green moustaches.
