Anecdote of the Jar

     Wallace Stevens
I placed a jar in Tennessee,
     And round it was, upon a hill.
     It made the slovenly wilderness
     Surround that hill.

     The wilderness rose up to it,
     And sprawled around, no longer wild.
     The jar was round upon the ground
     And tall and of a port in air.

     It took dominion everywhere.
     The jar was grey and bare.
     It did not give of bird or bush,
     Like nothing else in Tennessee.

The "Dominion Wide Mouth" Jar is said to be (by Roy Harvey Pearce) the "source" for the "Anecdote of the Jar.  (photo and information source: Wallace Stevens (1879-1955)
But you can have an image of the jar by yourself!
