    And the beauty
    Of the moonlight
    Falling there,
    Falling
    As sleep falls
    In the innocent air.
    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)
