Soldier, there is a war between the mind
And sky, between thought and day and night. It is
For that the poet is always in the sun,
Patches the moon together in his room
To his Virgilian cadences, up down,
Up down. It is a war that never ends.
Wallace Stevens (1879–1955), U.S. poet. "Notes toward a Supreme Fiction."
