From the book of light (1993), "here yet be dragons" Summary

This poem addresses the terror that haunts most writers and artists. The dragon is a symbol of writer's block or artist's block, including the disaster of losing a whole language because someone cannot write the poems. The first stanza refers to that disaster. The second stanza, just two lines, says there are monsters in the dragon's mouth, which eat up lost people and the poems they did not write. Poems help us imagine ourselves, say the next two stanzas. The last two lines point out that the fragile nature of this art-making keeps writers and artists humble.
