too potent to be meek Does "The bearded Turk, that rarely deigns to speak, Master of all around, too potent to be meek" mean "this bearded Turk, that rarely speaks a word, who is the master of a lot of lands, how can he be that calm"?

It means that he is very powerful. Potent is another way to say strong, and "meek" is more or less an opposite of "brave"
