Poem

Famous quotes containing the word poem:

    The poem of the mind in the act of finding
    What will suffice. It has not always had
    To find: the scene was set; it repeated what
    Was in the script.
    Then the theatre was changed
    To something else. Its past was a souvenir.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)

    This is the poem of the air,
    Slowly in silent syllables recorded;
    This is the secret of despair,
    Long in its cloudy bosom hoarded,
    Now whispered and revealed
    To wood and field.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)

    A poem need not have a meaning and like most things in nature often does not have.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
