Richard Aldington explains Imagism, Egoist 1 vol 11, June 1914: "We do not say 'O how I admire that exquisite, that beautiful, that—25 more adjectives—woman" or "O exquisite, O beautiful, O 25 more adjectives woman, you are cosmic, let us spoon for ever..."
...when in reality I think any imagist poem could be improved by adding
you are cosmic
let us spoon forever
to the end of it
