How we cite our quotes:

Quote #4

Tender warmth at his heart, with these meters to show it, (13)

The phrase "these meters" could refer either to the poem itself (as if the poet were saying "with these metrical verses that I've just composed for you, Derwent") or to Derwent's knowledge of the meters described. Could this mean that the poem itself and Derwent's ability to learn about the meters discussed are indistinguishable?
