Among Wordsworth, Coleridge and Ted Hughes Poem by Daniel Trevelyn Joseph


Like the river in Kubla Khan,
Gushing forth,
From inside it arises
Beseeching to be put out
In verse-form.

Is it feeling or image,
Thought or experience,
Recollected in tranquility,
I am confused, I don’t know.

But I take out pen and paper,
And fix the thought-fox.
