    Pound stuff is to poetry what a Big Mac left on a bench is to sculpture. Useless, pretentious garbage taht idiots think is deep (Report) Reply

    Typo aside I agree 100%. This is the guy that said Wordsworth was terrible yet he wrote this tripe and called it poetry.

    You are violets with wind above them
    A child -so high- you are

    Excellent use of imagery.
    Beautiful and delightful poem.

    Pound, the fierce fist-pounder on many issues, in his poems was OFTEN movingly LYRICAL-not just in his shorter poems, as this one (and many others well-chosen by Poemhunter) , but in his translations and throughout The Cantos.
    If you haven't yet read his immensely moving Li Po translation, 'The River Merchan't Wife: A Letter, ' treat yourself at this site. I bet you weep.
