So it was several years ago when a student gave me a card of appreciation, quoting a simple poem, and adding her profound thoughts.
As a former English major, I'd somehow forgotten the poem, but it jarred my thoughts with its intriguing images and words.
Now as I look back, and read more, it is amazing how many different interpretations there are by "experts" over such few, simple words.
Oh, the poem:
so much depends
a red wheel
glazed with rain
beside the white
--William Carlos Williams, 1932
