Anecdote of the Jar by Wallace Stevens

Happy Monday everyone! I am having horrible luck lately! Jeez. My router is broke so I have no internet at home. We bought a new one and its being a pain. >.< The only way I can use the blessed internet is to go to a public place or go to a friend's house or Boyfriend's apartment. NOW Youtube is acting up. Sighs. I can't win these last couple of weeks. 

In place of my scheduled Music Monday post, I shall post some poetry. It's been awhile. ^.^ This poem I had memorized for my American Lit II class. Not sure why I didn't share it earlier...oh well. It is called 'Anecdote of the Jar' by Wallace Stevens:

I placed a jar in Tennessee,
And round it was, upon a hill.
It made the slovenly wilderness
Surround that hill.

The wilderness rose up to it,
And sprawled around, no longer wild.
The jar was round upon the ground
And tall and of a port in air.

It took dominion every where.
The jar was gray and bare.
It did not give of bird or bush,
Like nothing else in Tennessee.

I am not that "modern"

I am not either...except when the internet I help pay for does not work. *grumbles*
