Here’s my attempt:

 

so much depends

upon

a red wheel

barrow

(William Carlos Williams)

 

snow clouds drift

over

our valley

after

stair-step summer

ends

bitter winter

comes

weather bends

so much depends

 

on fickle

sun

swinging south

along

with bird flights

begun

weeks ago,

wedging

over lakes spun

upon

 

with visual

echoes

of industry

withdrawn,

a dormancy

deal

of last flash

gold

to mold-meal

a red wheel

 

turning through

eons

in coursing blood

and genes

in water and

marrow

cycles shifting in

farmer’s

slicing harrow;

barrow

 

so much depends

upon

a red wheel

barrow
