Yes. Melancholy, but the love, the true love! It just truly touched me.Don't think I've read anything by Ezra Pound before, an unusual poem, not sure if I like it or not, seems somehow a bit melancholy. Just noticed Peder's response, maybe I don't have a romantic soul!
Funny, I didn't find my Pound selection fundamentally sad. The love that existed between them overwhelmed all else in my eyes. I guess I only truly felt the positive vibes from it.
Eek! Full stop with that one!

You have others? :eyes popping:
Hmm, more Pound, but in his imagist and rather vague period (1913):
In a Station of the Metro
The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough.
