to show (but you have to except)the things others tell you in my oppinion

This is a beautiful poem and one of my favorite Crane poems. It is about
how the "maniac", a man rejected by society, sits in nature and interprets
his surroundings in his own way. He can observe nature purely through his
own eyes and ears. The "you" (probably society in general) person in the
poem can't even enjoy nature how it is - the person distorts it with his
green spectacles and refuses to see the roses except through the distorted
glasses, or viewpoint, society has given him.
