More from Richard Wilbur

These make me laugh... what incredible wit.

From "Opposites" # 31

The opposite is fast is loose,
And if you doubt it you're a goose,
"Nonsense!"you cry.  "As you should know,
The opposite of fast is slow."
Well let's not quarrel: have a chair
And see what's on the bill of fare.

(sketch of two men sitting at
a restaurant table)

We should agree on this at least:
The opposite of fast is feast.
