Poem of the day

Ezra Pound Poem
Taking Leave Of A Friend
 by Ezra Pound

Blue mountains to the north of the walls,
White river winding about them;
Here we must make separation

Mind like a floating wide cloud,

Keanu Heydari: The brilliant opening to Zenith’s edition & translation of Fernando Pessoa’s “The Book of Disquiet.” “Decadence is the total loss of unconsciousness, which is the very basis of life. Could it think, the heart would stop beating.”

Fleur: “The value of things is not the time they last, but the intensity with which they occur. That is why there are unforgettable moments and unique people!” ― Fernando Pessoa

Hilly Raphael: Just reading words on tomb of Fernando Pessoa (1877-1935), "I am nothing...But i have in me all the dreams of the world". Wholeheartedly agree Jenny:

SicutCervus: "The Gods Grant Nothing More Than Life" by Fernando Pessoa--writing as Ricardo Reis. (It's been a long time since I posted a pic and a poem to social media.)

ClaymoreGwen: Fernando Pessoa wrote about gay roman twinks and nobody told me?

Marcos Cruz: “How did I develop into what I already was? How have I come to know the I that I never knew back then? And everything becomes a confusing labyrinth where I stray, in myself, away from myself.” — Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet Photography: Fraser West

James West: A spirited and joyous rewire of the tune that I first heard on the 1957 álbum Fernando Pessoa by Brazilian singer João Villaret from the new album Colors and Shadows by singer/trumpeter Andrea Motis with the WDR Big Band sung in Portuguese "Tabacaria"

Francisco Ribeiro: “How did I develop into what I already was? How have I come to know the I that I never knew back then? And everything becomes a confusing labyrinth where I stray, in myself, away from myself.” — Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet Photography: Fraser West

O.: I write because I don't know. —Fernando Pessoa * Poems come out of wonder, not out of knowing. —Lucille Clifton * It’s possible to both know and not know something. —Emily St. John Mandel * I don't know —Jack Kerouac

Snooper-Scope: ~Little poetry, lots of partying in 'The Laureate'~

Quotes & Thoughts: "There's no money in poetry, but then there's no poetry in money, either." - Robert Graves

LemonEyes: "There's no money in poetry, but then there's no poetry in money, either." - Robert Graves

Mike Ownby: But that's just my lonely little opinion, and I have no interest in or knowledge of Robert Graves. Maybe it's better if you're informed about him.

Catatan Matahari: What we now call 'finance' is, I hold, an intellectual perversion of what began as warm human love. Robert Graves
