Three or Four Hills and a Cloud - a Wallace Stevens Sunday
|By KE Chambers|
|Today's poem from Poetry Daily. Happy Sunday.|
Of the Surface of Things
by Wallace Stevens
In my room, the world is beyond my understanding;
But when I walk I see that it consists of three or four
hills and a cloud.
From my balcony, I survey the yellow air,
Reading where I have written,
"The spring is like a belle undressing."
The gold tree is blue,
The singer has pulled his cloak over his head.
The moon is in the folds of the cloak.
