Sorry, poor example. I started with normal deviates and jumped without thinking to Poisson. The main crux of the question is how does the output of density relate to the parameters that describe some of the standard distributions (mean and std for normal, lambda for Poisson, n and p for Binomial, alpha and beta for Beta, etc.).

Thank you.
