POEM OF .THE WEEK American Life in Poetry Ted Kooser U.S. Poet Laureate E.B. White, one of my favorite writers, used to say, "Simplify, simplify, simplify," but that doesn't mean that writing has to be simple, which is a different matter. Here's a fine poem by Laurel Blossom of South Carolina that's been simplified into a pure, clean beauty. Red Balloon Rising I tied it to your wrist With a pretty pink bow, torn off By the first little tug of wind. I'm sorry. I jumped to catch it, but not soon enough. It darted away. The balloon looked happy, waving Good-bye. The sky is very high today, I said. Red went black, a polka dot, Then not. We watched it, Even though we couldn't It still looked large and almost within reach. Like a heart. Spot it anymore at all. Even after that. Watch, I said. You squinted your little eyes.
