Quote #4

The maker's rage to order words of the sea,
Words of the fragrant portals, dimly-starred,
And of ourselves and of our origins, (52-55)

It's hard to ignore the writing metaphor here. The "maker" is arranging words, words that describe nature and humanity, and putting them in order. That sounds kind of like writing a poem, right?
