The Songs of Eretz Poem of the Day for August 26, 2014 is "on getting a card" by William Carlos Williams, Poet of the Month. The poem was taken from The Collected Poems of William Carlos Williams, Volume 1: 1909 - 1939. The text of the poem may be found here: http://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/poem-getting-card. A brief biography of Williams and references may be found here: http://eretzsongs.blogspot.com/2014/08/the-songs-of-eretz-poet-of-month-for.html.
Here we see another example of Williams' variable foot and prosaic poesy. The sentiments expressed are delightful, especially about how Williams' colleague (or perhaps rival) differs with him but does not realize that he does.
