Pound, Ezra: O Atthis

Portre of Pound, Ezra

O Atthis (English)

Thy soul         

Grown delicate with satieties,



O Atthis,         

I long for thy lips.


I long for thy narrow breasts, 

Thou restless, ungathered.

Oh Atthis (Spanish)

Vuestra alma

delicada por la costumbre de la saciedad,



Oh Atthis,

muero por vuestros labios


muero por vuestros pechos infantiles,

vos, la impaciente, la intocada.
