Ezra Pound Poems

  • Rome
    Ô nouveau venu qui cherche Rome à Rome
    Et ne trouvez à Rome rien que vous ne puissiez appeler romain;

  • Rom

  • Roma

    Y no encuentras en Roma nada que puedas llamar romano;

  • La Fraisne

    That old age weareth for a cloak. ...

Elizabeth Stoddard Poem
The Wolf-Tamer
 by Elizabeth Stoddard

Through the gorge of snow we go,
Tracking, tramping soft and slow,
With our paws and sheathed claws,
So we swing along the snow,
Crowding, crouching to your pipes-
Shining serpents! Well you know,
When your lips shall cease to blow
Airs that lure us through the snow,
