    Howsoever thou attest, let heaven be moved by thy purpose,
    Let the aim of thy deeds traverse the axis of earth!...
  • The Artifice
    Wouldst thou give pleasure at once to the children of earth and the righteous?
    Draw the image of lust adding the devil as well!

  • Hero And Leander. [34] A Ballad

Ezra Pound Poem
Taking Leave Of A Friend
 by Ezra Pound

And go out through a thousand miles of dead grass.

Sunset like the parting of old acquaintances
Who bow over their clasped hands at a distance.
