Through Ezra Pound's eyes

Beaten from flesh into light

Hath swallowed the fire-ball

Attraverso le foglie

His rod hath made god in my belly

Sic loquitur nupta

Cantat sic nupta

Dark shoulders have stirred the lightning

A girl's arms have nested the fire,

Not I but the handmaid kindled

Cantat sic nupta

I have eaten the flame.

 

Ezra Pound, Cantos XXXIX
