We live in an old chaos of the sun,|
Or old dependency of day and night,
Or island solitude, unsponsored, free,
Of that wide water, inescapable.
— Wallace Stevens, "Sunday Morning," lines 110-113
Happy Autumnal Equinox! And woe unto you who is not of the Sun, for we live in an old chaos of the sun!
