The last bear, shot drinking in the Dakotas Loped under wires
that span the mountain stream. Keen instruments,
strung to a vast precision Bind town to town
and dream to ticking dream. (Harold) Hart Crane The Bridge,'The River'.
Poetry can communicate the actual quality of experience with a
subtletyand precision unapproachable by
any other means. F(rank) R(aymond) Leavis New Bearings in English Poetry, ch.2.
