Francesca Poem by Ezra Pound


Rating: 3.0

You came in out of the night
And there were flowers in your hand,
Now you will come out of a confusion of people,
Out of a turmoil of speech about you.

I who have seen you amid the primal things
Was angry when they spoke your name
IN ordinary places.
I would that the cool waves might flow over my mind,
And that the world should dry as a dead leaf,
Or as a dandelion see-pod and be swept away,
So that I might find you again,

Ahh..''among the primal things''; delight is this poem, and so sensual, my love gave me that as a gift, different from H.D, I took it happily...
