    I cannot take possession of the sky,
    Mount with a thoughtless impulse, and wheel there,
    One of a mighty multitude whose way
    And motion is a harmony and dance

    And next to love is the desire for love,
    The desire for its celestial ease in the heart,
    Which nothing can frustrate, that most secure,
    Unlike love in possession of that which was
    To be possessed and is.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
