The Seeing Eye - Poem by Ezra Pound

The small dogs look at the big dogs;
They observe unwieldy dimensions
And curious imperfections of odor.
Here is the formal male group:
The young men look upon their seniors,
They consider the elderly mind
And observe its inexplicable correlations.

Said Tsin-Tsu:
It is only in small dogs and the young
That we find minute observation

    Such soulful observations a keen mind may, occasionally, truly find; but a keen spirit observes them all, holds them deep, and ponders them for a lifetime. (Report) Reply
