Ezra Pound

(30 October 1885 – 1 November 1972 / Hailey / Idaho)

Statement of Being


I am a grave poetic hen
That lays poetic eggs
And to enhance my temperament
A little quiet begs.

We make the yolk philosophy,
True beauty the albumen.
And then gum on a shell of form
To make the screed sound human.
