Ezra Pound Poems

  • Rome
    Ô nouveau venu qui cherche Rome à Rome
    Et ne trouvez à Rome rien que vous ne puissiez appeler romain;
    Arches usées et palais rendus communs
    Seul le nom de Rome entre ces murs reste à la maison. ...
  • Rom
    O du Neuling, der Rom in Rom sucht
    Und finde in Rom nichts, was du als römisch bezeichnen kannst;
    Alt getragene Bögen und gemeinsame Paläste
    Roms Name allein innerhalb dieser Mauern bleibt zu Hause. ...
  • Roma
    ¡Oh tú, recién llegado que buscas Roma en Roma!
    Y no encuentras en Roma nada que puedas llamar romano;
    Arcos viejos y palacios hechos comunes
    El nombre de Roma solo dentro de estos muros guarda su hogar. ...
  • Tenzone
    Will people accept them?
    (i.e. these songs).
    As a timorous wench from a centaur
    (or a centurion), ...
  • La Fraisne
    For I was a gaunt, grave councillor
    Being in all things wise, and very old,
    But I have put aside this folly and the cold
    That old age weareth for a cloak. ...

Poem of the day

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Poem
Beatrice. (From Dante. Purgatorio, Xxx., Xxxi.)
 by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Even as the Blessed, at the final summons,
Shall rise up quickened, each one from his grave,
Wearing again the garments of the flesh,
So, upon that celestial chariot,
A hundred rose
ad vocem tanti senis
,
Ministers and messengers of life eternal.
