Excerpt from Coleridge's the Rime of the Ancient Mariner: Christabel and Kubla Khan

I have treated these poems as introductory to poetry, aiming to help boys and girls to see the beauties of song land. True, some seem elect, Without aid; others seem by nature debarred. There is, however, a great mean the host of young people who may be taught to enjoy poetry. Editor and teacher must help them, not mere ly by admiring, but by explaining admiration. Poetry reaches us, not by miracle, but by means most definite. The printed lines convey certain sounds pleasing in themselves. Yet to the untrained ear even this beauty must be demonstrated. Just so with the ideas, to us so suggestive. The student must be helped to grasp the idea, to master the material for emotion. His imagina tion must do the rest.
