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

Ernest Dowson Poem
Seraphita
 by Ernest Dowson

Come not before me now, O visionary face!
Me tempest-tost, and borne along life's passionate sea;
Troublous and dark and stormy though my passage be;
Not here and now may we commingle or embrace,
Lest the loud anguish of the waters should efface
The bright illumination of thy memory,
Which dominates the night; rest, far away from me,
In the serenity of thine abiding-place!
