Advice to a Prophet1961Right down the shocked street with asiren-blast

That sends all else skittering to thecurb,

Redness, brass, ladders and hats hurlpast,Blurring to sheer verb,Shift at the corner into uproarious gear

And make it around the turn in a squallof traction,

The headlong bell maintaining sure andclear,

.: :.

Richard Wilbur's point of writing this poem is to thank firmen
He describes the fire-truck as though he were in awe and respects the firetruck and what the firemen do.
He gives an example of someone thanking a fireman for saving their life in the line "and i have you to thank"
He also icorporates the fact that firemen act on instinct and act on a moments notice in the line "though is degraded action"
At the end of the poem he says "your phoenix-red simplicity, enshrined in that not extinguished fire"
He is describing what he saw when he witnessed the heroic acts of the firemen
