so much depends

so much depends

A Poem by E S Stevens

This piece was inspired by and heavily borrows from William Carlos Williams' "The Red Wheelbarrow."


so much depends


a red wheel


but so much depends

upon the hands that move it

soft, comforting hands, loving hands

offering embrace, a soul soothing hug

rough calloused hands, intimidating hands

promising work and sweat from the brow

no two hands the same

but all hands offering something

in a world glazed with

rain water

so much depends
