Famous quotes containing the word stevens:

    And the whole of the soul, Swenson,
    As every man in Sweden will concede,
    Still hankers after lions, or, to shift,
    Still hankers after sovereign images.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    That scrawny cry—it was
    A chorister whose C preceded the choir.
    It was part of the colossal sun,

    Surrounded by its choral rings,
    Still far away. It was like
    A new knowledge of reality.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    Here in the centre stands the glass. Light
    Is the lion that comes down to drink. There
    And in that state, the glass is a pool.
    Ruddy are his eyes and ruddy are his claws
    When light comes down to wet his frothy jaws
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
