Rhyme Scheme: ABC DAE FGH IJK LMN LOP QRF LSI

This horrible but superb paintingA
the parable of the blindB
without a redC
-
in the composition shows a groupD
of beggars leadingA
each other diagonally downwardE
-
across the canvasF
from one sideG
to stumble finally into a bogH
-
where the pictureI
and the composition ends backJ
of which no seeing manK
-
is represented the unshavenL
features of the desM
titute with their fewN
-
pitiful possessions a basinL
to wash in a peasantO
cottage is seen and a church spireP
-
the faces are raisedQ
as toward the lightR
there is no detail extraneousF
-
to the composition oneL
follows the others stick inS
hand triumphant to disasterI

William Carlos Williams
