An August Midnight


                               Final Soliloquy of the Interior Paramour


Light the first light of evening, as in a room

In which we rest and, for small reason, think

The world imagined is the ultimate good.


This is, therefore, the intensest rendezvous.

It is in that thought that we collect ourselves,

Out of all the indifferences, into one thing:


Within a single thing, a single shawl

Wrapped tightly round us, since we are poor, a warmth,

A light, a power, the miraculous influence.


Here, now, we forget each other and ourselves.

We feel the obscurity of an order, a whole,

A knowledge, that which arranged the rendezvous,


Within its vital boundary, in the mind.

We say God and the imagination are one . . .

How high that highest candle lights the dark.


Out of this same light, out of the central mind,

We make a dwelling in the evening air,

In which being there together is enough.


Wallace Stevens

In this hurried world, the Garden of Ideas is a place to slow down.   To stop, look, and listen.  There is so much more to see, to hear, to smell, to taste, and to feel.    Wake up your senses in this place and become more alive.


Whether you take a self-directed stroll or participate in one of our programs, we hope you will leave renewed.
