This scene is based on William Carlos Williams’ "The Red Wheelbarrow":

So much depends
upon a red wheel
barrow
glazed with rain
water
beside the white
chickens.

That's the whole poem. Even though it's very short, literary critics have written pages and pages about it. I will not tire you with any of what they say; nevertheless, most of us can enjoy a striking image when it is three-dimensional in front of us.

The Red Wheelbarrow scene is included in the "Glencoe Literature - The Readers Choice: American Literature" and McDougal Littel's "The Language of Literature" textbooks intended for high school juniors.
