Wallace Stevens words applicable to Ned Colbert & Stephen Jay Gould



In thinking of the joys Ned Colbert & Stephen Jay
Gould provided to our minds, I offer words by Wallace
Stevens applicable:
THE PLEASURES OF MERELY CIRCULATING
The garden flew round with the angel,
The angel flew round with the clouds,
And the clouds flew round and the clouds flew round
And the clouds flew round with the clouds.

Is there any secret in skulls,
skulls in the woods?
Do the drummers in black hoods
Rumble anything out of their drums?

Mrs. Anderson's Swedish baby
Might well have been German or Spanish,
Yet that things go round and again go round
Has rather a classical sound.
