Pound's lifetime of carving resulted in a masterwork of 116 stanzas that spanned the four decades of his mature and declining years. We squint our eyes to look at him. It sounds like a student that has been studying Whitman way too much in his past and is trying to make amends with this irritating poet, Whitman. There died a myriad, And of the best, among them, For an old bitch gone in the teeth, For a botched civilization. The bird sits on the hawthorn tree But he dies also, presently. Nor has life in it aught better Than this hour of clear coolness the hour of waking together.

A Pact poem by Ezra Pound

a pact ezra pound

It was you that broke the new wood, Now is a time for carving. . We are better off growing oaks from acorns. Charm, smiling at the good mouth, Quick eyes gone under earth's lid, For two gross of broken statues, For a few thousand battered books.

A Pact poem by Ezra Pound

You stand about the streets, You loiter at the corners and bus-stops, You do next to nothing at all. Italian Campagna 1309, the open road Bah! You do not even express our inner nobilitys, You will come to a very bad end. Are people less friends because one has just, at last, found them? You have to be educated to appreciate Pound, he inserts German, Italian, French, and other languages into his poetry. Said Tsin-Tsu: It is only in small dogs and the young That we find minute observation 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. The good and the beautiful have been decided by the market place. Have I dug him up again? Pound admired such people as Mussolini and Hitler because they were strong men. Pisistratus was a Greek dictator who had great things done in his name, such as architecture and art.

Ezra Pound

Out, and alone, among some Alien people! Lips, words, and you snare them, Dreams, words, and they are as jewels, Strange spells of old deity, Ravens, nights, allurement: And they are not; Having become the souls of song. Slow on the leash, pallid the leash-men! But first Elpenor came, our friend Elpenor, Unburied, cast on the wide earth, Limbs that we left in the house of Circe, Unwept, unwrapped in the sepulchre, since toils urged other. Twice they promised to come. Chill its chains are; chafing sighs Hew my heart round and hunger begot Mere-weary mood. 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, Alone. Eyes, dreams, lips, and the night goes. In 'A Pact,' Ezra Pound expresses his own parental pains in growing up - not as a person, but as an artist.

Fourteenth Friend: Ezra Pound, “A Pact”

Maulberly is a fictional poet, a second persona to Pound. Commerce has replaced the sacred event of circumcision in the Jewish religion and the American dream of making money. I had over prepared the event, that much was ominous. Pound views this change as a negative thing. I have left her lately. With the price of turkeys on the bound, And coal, by gum! Dark blood flowed in the fosse, Souls out of Erebus, cadaverous dead, of brides Of youths and of the old who had borne much; Souls stained with recent tears, girls tender, Men many, mauled with bronze lance heads, Battle spoil, bearing yet dreory arms, These many crowded about me; with shouting, Pallor upon me, cried to my men for more beasts; Slaughtered the herds, sheep slain of bronze; Poured ointment, cried to the gods, To Pluto the strong, and praised Proserpine; Unsheathed the narrow sword, I sat to keep off the impetuous impotent dead, Till I should hear Tiresias. His recombination of the verse styles and contexts of various cultures led him to create a truly American style of poetry and he's often touted as the 'father' of free verse - a form of poetry with no regular meter or line length.
