The Act by William Carlos Williams

Could anything be more beautiful?

The Act
William Carlos Williams

There were the roses, in the rain.

Don’t cut them, I pleaded.

They won’t last, she said.

But they’re so beautiful

where they are.

Agh, we were all beautiful once, she said,

and cut them and gave them to me

in my hand.
