Coleridge and Avison

The lines from Canadian poet Margaret Avison that I quoted (poorly) from memory in relation to Coleridge's Apologia Pro Vita Sua are these, from "Snow" (Winter Sun):
Nobody stuffs the world in at your eyes.
The optic heart must venture: a jail-break
And re-creation.
I can't begin here to describe the excellencies of easily our greatest poet. Consider picking up some volume of hers for your indugence.
