    'The world's more than the sum of things
    like moon, sky, centre, body, bed,
    as all the singing masters know.' - Wonderful! A great message of truth in just three lines!
    The last stanza epitomizes the beauty of the poem, particularly the last line.

    to me this is an interesting statement about the real and the words we use to summon the real. the image of the two lovers in the last stanza is an excellent one for the intimacy it suggests as well as the part thought plays in that intimacy and the attraction that leads to it. -gk (Report)Reply
