These two poems of modern free form structure and concept, impressionistically describe fountains actions. Bogan's stops at a description while Davie's associates a description with a antithetical comparison to "Berkeley" for whom a fountain was a metaphor for
... human thought, that mounts
From bland assumptions to inquiring skies,
There glints with wit, fumes into fancies, plays
With its negations....
The difference between the two poems is that while Bogan's stops at the object described, Davie's extends the object to a metaphysical and philosophical consideration.
