It is an amazing sentence. Thank you for the syntactical analysis of Thomas's poem. I always loved the 'synagogue of the ear of corn." I am also a sucker for a poem, or self-contained passage from a long poem, that consists of one mighty syntactically complicated sentence -- the opening of "Out of the Cradle Endlessly rocking", for example.

Radio

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
