    In the woods in a winter afternoon one will see as readily the origin of the stained glass window, with which Gothic cathedrals are adorned, in the colors of the western sky seen through the bare and crossing branches of the forest.

    But now moments surround us
    Like a crowd, some inquisitive faces, some hostile ones,
    Some enigmatic or turned away to an anterior form of time
    Given once and for all. The jetstream inscribes a final flourish
    That melts as it stays.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
