Ezra Pound Poems
Canto 1 And then went down to the ship,
Set keel to breakers, forth on the godly sea, andWe set up mast and sail on that swart ship,
Ancient Music Winter is icummen in,
Lhude sing Goddamm,Raineth drop and staineth slop,
An Immorality Sing we for love and idleness,
Naught else is worth the having.
Alba As cool as the pale wet leaves
of lily-of-the-valleyShe lay beside me in the dawn.
A Virginal No, no! Go from me. I have left her lately.
I will not spoil my sheath with lesser brightness,For my surrounding air hath a new lightness;
A Pact I make a pact with you, Walt Whitman-
I have detested you long enough.I come to you as a grown child
A Girl The tree has entered my hands,
The sap has ascended my arms,The tree has grown in my breast-

Poem of the day
All The Hills And Vales Along by Charles Hamilton Sorley
All the hills and vales along
Earth is bursting into song,
And the singers are the chaps
Who are going to die perhaps.
O sing, marching men,
Till the valleys ring again.
Give your gladness to earth's keeping,
So be glad, when you are sleeping.
