The reference is to Robert Griffin's book In the Kingdom of the Lonely God (Paulist Press, 1973), anecdote on p. 96.

The World Is Charged

The aging priest remembers

a summer day in Maine

when, aged sixteen, he wandered

through fields of strawberries

with a lissome barefoot girl

he ached to love.

Oh my, this poetry immediately created visions as beautiful as the tender emotions I experienced because of the world you designed with your words.

So very lovely.
