Wallace Stevens

The sea was the house and the world was the nave 
You were the sea and you were the nave 

The nave was stormy, the sea was calm 
While the house was waiting for the world 

To come in by the navy of the sea 
The sea was a nave, the world was a house 

You were the nave in the sea— 
The house and the world 

The world was the navy in the sea 
And the sea was the house
