Spring and All (1923) First edition

The "Red Wheelbarrow" is a recurring motif throughout Season 2. It is an allusion to a free verse composition by American imagist poet William Carlos Williams.

The Red Wheelbarrow is the twenty-second piece in his book "Spring and All", a collection of prose and free-verse poetry published in 1923. The poem was first published without a title.

so much depends upon
a red wheel barrow
glazed with rain water
beside the white chickens.
