When he wrote poems, he felt as free

as the Passaic River as it rushed to the falls.

Willie's notebooks filled up, one after another.

Willie's words gave him freedom and peace, but he also knew he needed to earn a living. So he went off to medical school and became a doctor 2; one of the busiest men in town Yet he never stopped writing poetry.
