Here is my best explanation:

'poem' is the definition.
(Edward Thomas poem)

'vaguely stop and read line' is the wordplay.
'vaguely' indicates an anagram.
'and' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'line' becomes 'l'.
'stop'+'read'+'l'='stopreadl'
'stopreadl' is an anagram of 'ADLESTROP'.

'in' acts as a link.
