    The format of this poem with its repetitions strikes ne as effort to convnce yourself of the validity of your poetic vision. There is a double assertion: first you assert the value of another poet's inspiring words that give you the necessary strength. This strikes me as a stoic assertion: you are not asking for sympathy but just understanding.
    Second, this poem is preparatory to writing a poem. It is a poem of readiness to write the neccaery poem still hiding out of your sifght.
