By beginning with the activity of logging, he means to emphasize the human will to harvest the riches of the vegetable world, a process as common to ancient China as to the forests of his native Northwest. Everything goes, leaves, disappears is in some way used. Snyder not only actually built ripraps, but he sees a poem as itself constructing what Blake called a limit of contraction, something upon which we can stand and rejoice. The poem plays, it borrows, it crosses cultures, it proceeds by self-questioning. We can see this in its first and in its last line.
