Beauty Straight From Nature

To Whom It May Concern:

I am an advertising representative from Zadina Corp. and have produced a brilliant idea for a new ad campaign for KaBloom, Ltd. It is our goal here to inspire, create, and produce exciting new advertising ideas for your company to grow and expand to its fullest potential. Keeping that in mind, we here at Zadina Corp. have taken a fresh and innovative turn for the best for your new advertising campaign. Our proposition is to take the simple, yet quite inspiring, poetic influence of William Carlos Williams and turn it into a radiant advertisement that is not only stimulating, but profitable and beneficial to your consumer market as well. "The Act", written by William Carlos Williams, will captivate KaBloom's audience and draw them into the full range of KaBloom products, using the poems' universal symbolism of love and beauty and its intensive and emotion inspiring imagery.

Williams writes,

There were the roses, in the rain.

Don't cut them, I pleaded.

They won't last, she said.

But they're so beautiful

Where they are.

Agh, we were all beautiful once, she said.

And cut them and gave them to me

In my hand. (1-8)

In Williams's poem, you can just simply picture a scene. Imagine the most beautiful roses growing together, glistening with the slightest bit of rainwater that has just previously fallen. There is a woman about to cut these roses from their picturesque natural environment. Another person, watching in complete dismay, begs the first woman not to cut the roses solely based on their true beauty in where they are. The woman, just before she cuts them, reply's with "Agh, we were all beautiful once." (6), and continues to cut them and hands them to the flustered second person.
