Ezra Pound - Villanelle: The P

I had over prepared the event,that much was ominous1.With middle-ageing careI had laid out just the right books.I had almost turned down the pages.Beauty is so rare a thing.So few drink of my fountain.So much barren regret,So many hours wasted!And now I watch, from the window,the rain, the wandering busses."Their little cosmos2 is shaken" - the air is alive with that fact.In their parts of the citythey are played on by diverse forces.How do I know?Oh, I know well enough.For them there is something afoot.As for me;I had over-prepared the event - Beauty is so rare a thing.So few drink of my fountain.Two friends: a breath of the forest. . . Friends? Are people less friendsbecause one has just, at last, found them?Twice they promised to come."Between the night and the morning?"Beauty would drink of my mind.Youth would awhile forgetmy youth is gone from me.(Speak up! You have danced so stiffly?Someone admired your works,And said so frankly3."Did you talk like a fool,The first night?The second evening?""But they promised again:'To-morrow at tea-time'.")Now the third day is here - no word from either;No word from her nor him,Only another man's note:"Dear Pound, I am leaving England."
