Page 138, note 2. The verses in the "Fragments on The Poet" in the Appendix to the Poems are suggested:—
Let me go where'er I will
I hear a sky-born music still, etc.;
In dens of passion and pits of woe,
He saw strong Eros struggling through,
To sun the dark and solve the curse,
And beam to the bounds of the universe.
The quoted line below is from Burns's poem, "Address to the Deil."
