My heart rouses

“My heart rouses
            thinking to bring you news
                            of something
that concerns you
            and concerns many men. Look at
                            what passes for the new.
You will not find it there but in
            despised poems.
                            It is difficult
to get the news from poems
            yet men die miserably every day
                            for lack
of what is found there.”
~ William Carlos Williams
