There's definitely something in those first two lines:
"reading is seeing
writing is trusting"
And I think that you express the idea of 'awen'- the untameable, impulsive creative spark- really quite interestingly, moving round the subject with the distinction between the 'warm-blooded animal' and the scholar. The way that this returns in the final two lines rounds off the poem well, I think.
The closer I look the more I see!
'But whoso that, qwakynge, dredeth or desireth thyng that nys noght stable of his ryght, that man that so dooth hath cast awey his scheeld, and is remoeved from his place, and enlaceth hym in the cheyne with whiche he mai ben drawen.'
Chaucer Boece (Book 1, Metrum 4)
