Pastoral Analysis

Author: poem of William Carlos Williams Type: poem Views: 3

The little sparrows

hop ingenuously

about the pavement


with sharp voices

over those things

that interest them.

But we who are wiser

shut ourselves in

on either hand

and no one knows

whether we think good

or evil.


the old man who goes about

gathering dog-lime

walks in the gutter

without looking up

and his tread

is more majestic than

that of the Episcopal minister

approaching the pulpit

of a Sunday.

                   These things

astonish me beyond words.

.: :.

Williams has gone from poor to rich and appretiates where he is at but the color blue gray brings him happiness because he knows the poor are just as important as he is.

.: Pastoral :.

The word pastoral means this poem is about the poor. Williams is saying through this poem that the life of the poor is just as (if not more) significant than the lives of the rich.
