Looking For Love

Sitting in my computer
Looking for the view
Looking for love
What can I do

Holding the mouse
Within my hand
Trying and trying to understand
Thinking the mouse
Could be hand

Looking for love
What can I do
Telling a story is really true
Looking for love
What can I do

Just remember
I am waiting for you.

Enjoyed so much the comments by the people below- this poem brought out a lot of insight. I cannot add a thing to their brilliant thoughts about the relationships being portrayed by this beauty. I do like how he gave this poem its calm soothing atmosphere. For one thing, he repeated the word calm six times. Only a great poet can get by with that! But another way he created that calm was by writing longer lines and that has a lulling effect that short staccato lines do not create. Then there is the rhythm of words like in these: - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - The house was quiet and the world was calm. The reader became the book; and summer night Was like the conscious being of the book. The house was quiet and the world was calm.
Wow, I can certainly relate to this one. I have never read his poetry before, but I will surely read more. So appropriate, given the subject matter of this poem, that he was from a town called Reading!
Beautiful poem. Such a pleasure to read and immerse in its depth of thought. Beauty and truth coexist here.
The conscience being of the book! The truth is the key. Nice piece of work.
Another excellent Wallace Stevens commentary on how the mind creates our reality. Here the reader becomes the book as the book becomes a being and part of the night with all things unified within the mind and imagination. I love Stevens' poetry.
