    Mood: All

    October

    O leafy yellowness you create for me
    A world that was and now is poised above time,
    I do not need to puzzle out Eternity
    As I walk this arboreal street on the edge of a town.
    The breeze, too, even the temperature
    And pattern of movement, is precisely the same
    As broke my heart for youth passing. Now I am sure
    Of something. Something will be mine wherever I am.
    I want to throw myself on the public street without caring
    It is October over all my life and the light is staring
    As it caught me once in a plantation by the fox coverts.
    A man is ploughing ground for winter wheat
    And my nineteen years weigh heavily on my feet.

    Mood: Relaxing

    Taking Leave of a Friend

    Blue mountains to the north of the walls,
    White river winding about them;
    Here we must make separation
    And go out through a thousand miles of dead grass.

    Mind like a floating wide cloud,
    Sunset like the parting of old acquaintances
    Who bow over their clasped hands at a distance.
    Our horses neigh to each others
    as we are departing.

    Ezra Pound

    Mood: The Usual

    A Dream

    I heard the dogs howl in the moonlight night;
    I went to the window to see the sight;
    All the Dead that ever I knew
    Going one by one and two by two.

    On they pass'd, and on they pass'd;
    Townsfellows all, from first to last;
    Born in the moonlight of the lane,
    Quench'd in the heavy shadow again.

    Schoolmates, marching as when they play'd
    At soldiers once - but now more staid;
    Those were the strangest sight to me
    Who were drown'd, I knew, in the awful sea.

    Straight and handsome folk, bent and weak, too;
    Some that I loved, and gasp'd to speak to;
    Some but a day in their churchyard bed;
    Some that I had not known were dead.

    A long, long crowd - where each seem'd lonely,
    Yet of them all there was one, one only,
    Raised a head or look'd my way;
    She linger'd a moment - she might not stay.

    How long since I saw that fair pale face!
    Ah! Mother dear! might I only place
    My head on thy breast, a moment to rest,
    While thy hand on my tearful cheek were prest!

    On, on, a moving bridge they made
    Across the moon-stream, from shade to shade,
    Young and old, women and men;
    Many long-forgot, but remembered then,

    And first there came a bitter laughter;
    A sound of tears a moment after;
    And then a music so lofty and gay,
    That eve morning, day by day,
    I strive to recall it if I may.

    A Question

    A voice said, Look me in the stars
    And tell me truly, men of earth,
    If all the soul-and-body scars
    Were not too much to pay for birth.

    Mood: Happie

    The Garret

    Come, let us pity those who are better off than we are.
    Come, my friend, and remember
    that the rich have butlers and no friends,
    And we have friends and no butlers.
    Come, let us pity the married and unmarried.

    Dawn enters with little feet
    like a gilded Pavlova,
    And I am near my desire.
    Nor has life in it aught better
    Than this hour of clear coolness,
    the hour of walking together.

    Mood: ia m a ner vous m a n

    Today my son told me
    that in the meadows,
    at the edge of the heavy woods
    in the distance, he saw
    trees of white flowers.
    I feel that I would like
    to go there
    and fall into those flowers
    and sink into the marsh near them.

    From the windows lament in springtime

    Mood: if its in you

    I had one eye, just one,
    they prised and propped open
    like a Formorian's
    so all I looked upon
    would itself turn to stone.

    Some girls wander by mistake
    into the mess that scalpels make.
    Are you the teachers of my heart?
    We teach old hearts to break.

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
