Ezra Pound: Alba

(Photo: Franz Larese from here)

So, Ezra Pound’s birthday today. He would have been . . . never mind, I don’t feel like doing the math. He was a little crazy, no doubt about it. Probably even a lot crazy. But still.

Alba
As cool as the pale wet leaves
                                       of lily-of-the-valley
She lay beside me in the dawn.
