Pound, Ezra: The Tea Shop

Portre of Pound, Ezra

The Tea Shop (English)

The girl in the tea shop

Is not so beautiful as she was,

The August has worn against her.

She does not get up the stairs so eagerly;

Yes, she also will turn middle-aged,

And the glow of youth that she spread about us

As she brought us our muffins

Will be spread about us no longer.

She also will turn middle-aged.

La Casa de Té (Spanish)

La muchacha de la casa de té no

es tan bella como antes,

El agosto la ha consumido.

Ya no sube las escaleras con tantas ansias;

Sí, ella también entrará en la madurez,

Y el halo de juventud que extendía alrededor

nuestro cuando traía los bizcochos

Ya no lo extenderá más.

Ella también entrará en la madurez.
