Dear colleagues,

A few months back, you helped me recall a poem that I had once had nearly
entirely memorize but had been unable to recall sufficiently to even look it
up on Google, Williams's "Asphodel, that Greeny Flower." I am again lost.
Does anyone recall a poem about a peasant boy with a copy of Homer in his
back pocket?  It's not Keats's "On first looking into Chapman's Homer."  All
help appreciated. The image remains without the words for me. Sheepishly...
