    Richard Moores's last comments on poems and poets

    • POET: Wallace Stevens (5/15/2006 10:36:00 AM)

      You have a serious punctuation error in the first stanza of Sunday Morning.
      The line,
      'The day is like wide water, without sound.'
      should end in a comma, not a period. Thus:

      Complacencies of the peignoir, and late
      Coffee and oranges in a sunny chair,
      And the green freedom of a cockatoo
      Upon a rug mingle to dissipate
      The holy hush of ancient sacrifice.
      She dreams a little, and she feels the dark
      Encroachment of that old catastrophe,
      As a calm darkens among water-lights.
      The pungent oranges and bright, green wings
      Seem things in some procession of the dead,
      Winding across wide water, without sound.
      The day is like wide water, without sound,
      Stilled for the passing of her dreaming feet
      Over the seas, to silent Palestine,
      Dominion of the blood and sepulchre.
