Impressions Of Francois-Marie Arouet (De Voltaire) written and read by Ezra Pound
III
To Madame Lullin

You’ll wonder that an old man of eighty
Can go on writing you verses. . . .

Grass showing under the snow,
Birds singing late in the year!

And Tibullus could say of his death, in his Latin:
‘Delia, I would look on you, dying.’

And Delia herself fading out,
Forgetting even her beauty.
