Poem by Samuel Taylor Coleridge


Aplolgia Pro Vita Sua


The poet in his lone yet genial hour
Gives to his eyes a magnifying power:
Or rather he emancipates his eyes
From the black shapeless accidents of size--
In unctuous cones of kindling coal,
Or smoke upwreathing from the pipe's trim bole,
His gifted ken can see
Phantoms of sublimity. 



                      Samuel Taylor Coleridge
