On Donne's Poetry

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

 Next Poem          

``With Donne, whose muse on dromedary trots,
Wreathe iron pokers into true-love knots ;
Rhyme's sturdy cripple, fancy's maze and clue,
Wit's forge and fire-blast, meaning's press and screw.''

    Coleridge sure knows how to weave words, wow!

      The imagery in the line "Wreathe iron pokers into true-love knots" is so striking. It's like a visual puzzle stretching the mind.
