Wallace Stevens Quote

Is there a poem that never reaches words And one that chaffers the time away?
Is the poem both peculiar and general?
There's a meditation there, in which there seems To be an evasion, a thing not apprehended or
Not apprehended well. Does the poet
Evade us, as in a senseless element?
