William Carlos Williams, one of our country's most influential poets and a New Jersey physician, taught us to celebrate daily life. Here Albert Garcia offers us the simple pleasures and modest mysteries of a single summer day. - Ted Kooser "August Morning" It's ripe, the melon by our sink. Yellow, bee-bitten, soft, it perfumes the house too sweetly. At five I wake, the air mournful in its quiet. My wife's eyes swim calmly under their lids, her mouth and jaw relaxed, different.

Buffalo.--WHEN I GOT out of the car a blade of frigid wind whipped my face with the fury of a pack of wolves starving in the snowy deeps of Siberia. ''I can't believe you people live here!'' I howled contra-venti at my friend Deborah Ott who was flattened by the gale against a wall of the University of Buffalo. ''It's nothing.'' she said, ''Wait till next month!''Luckily, I wasn't going to. I was going back next day to my scented bower of camellias, azaleas, wisteria, magnolia and birds where winter is only a dream, and our only fear is not finding a table at our favorite outdoor cafe.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a moderately obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar — another brick to add to the wall of your working vocabulary. This week's word: SAXIFRAGE In the grip of winter, the trees bare against the sky and the dark coming on so early in the afternoon, it is some consolation to reflect on the stubborn persistence of life. There is a little plant, the saxifrage (pronounced SAK-suh-frij), a low-lying thing that grows in poor soils and puts out small white, yellow, or red flowers.

Earl King, 69, a prolific songwriter and guitarist responsible for some of the most enduring and idiosyncratic compositions in the history of R&B, died Thursday of diabetes-related complications. Over his 50-year career, Mr. King wrote and recorded hundreds of songs. His best-known compositions include the Mardi Gras standards "Big Chief" and "Street Parade"; the rollicking "Come On (Let the Good Times Roll)"; and "Trick Bag," the quintessential New Orleans R&B story-song. In his prime, he was an explosive performer, tearing sinewy solos from his Stratocaster guitar and wearing his hair in an elaborate, upraised coif.

Nobody asked me, but here are some things I don't want for Father's Day: A Sharper Image cooling / warming system that you wear around your neck like a slave collar. I do not want a World's Greatest Dad T-shirt or coffee mug or barbecue apron or, for that matter, a $3,000 gas-fired barbecue grill or even a set of barbecue tools. My theory is that food tastes best when it's made in an air-conditioned, mosquito-free kitchen. No "Wall Street-related gift for that special father." No "incredible" $199.

"Ever since I took to writing poems seriously," Nobel laureate Joseph Brodsky tells us, "I've tried to write a poem every Christmas -- as a sort of birthday greeting." The first, "Christmas Ballad," was written in 1962, and the last, "Flight Into Egypt (2)," in 1995, the year before Brodsky's death. The poems about the birth of Jesus -- 18 in all -- fill the recently published Nativity Poems. While the Nobel laureate is the translator of a few of his poems, most of them are rendered by distinguished contemporary poets, including Anthony Hecht, Paul Muldoon, Richard Wilbur, Glyn Maxwell and Nobel laureates Seamus Heaney and Derek Walcott.
