Ezra Pound Poems
- 251. 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,
- 252. Ancient Music
Winter is icummen in,
Lhude sing Goddamm,Raineth drop and staineth slop,
- 253. An Immorality
Sing we for love and idleness,
Naught else is worth the having.
- 254. Alba
As cool as the pale wet leaves
of lily-of-the-valleyShe lay beside me in the dawn.
- 255. 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;
- 256. A Pact
I make a pact with you, Walt Whitman-
I have detested you long enough.I come to you as a grown child
- 257. A Girl
The tree has entered my hands,
The sap has ascended my arms,The tree has grown in my breast-
