Poetry Project

By Heaven Williams

Simile flint

  • An emerald is as green as grass,A ruby red as blood;A sapphire shines as blue as heaven;A flint lies in the mud.

  • A diamond is a brillant stone,To catch the world's desire;An opal holds a fiery spark;But a flint holds fire.



Just when you thought that winter

would be here forever,

that it could never end,

you saw:

Amidst the frozen white,

a tiny tip of green,

first blade of grass,

the messenger of spring.


  • The Train

  • I like to see it lap the miles, And lick the valleys up,And stop to feed itself at tanks;And then, prodigious, step

  • Around a pile of mountains,And, supercilious, peerIn shanties by the sides of roads;And then a quarry pare

  • To fit its sides, and crawl between, Complaining all the whileIn horrid, hooting stanza;Then chase itself down hill And neigh like Boanerges;Then, punctual as a start its own,Stop-docile and omnipotent-A stable door.
