Against Untempered Light by Hugh MacDiarmid

Ah, temperate light, do not sharpen your rays
Lest each of these dear familiar things
To a caricature of itself
From its normal guise springs.

Too much light is not good, since, increased,
What enables us to see all we see,
Would insubstantialise it instead
And our world cease to be.
