Famous quotes containing the word stevens:

    Speak, even, as if I did not hear you speaking,
    But spoke for you perfectly in my thoughts,
    Conceiving words,
    As the night conceives the sea-sounds in silence,
    And out of their droning sibilants makes
    A serenade.
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    It comes about that the drifting of these curtains
    Is full of long motions; as the ponderous
    Deflations of distance; or as clouds
    Inseparable from their afternoons....
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    And deck the bananas in leaves
    Plucked from the Carib trees,
    Fibrous and dangling down,
    Oozing cantankerous gum
    Out of their purple maws....
    —Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
