Visualizing Ezra Pound's Early Poetry: by Amardeep Singh

The White Stag

[Intertextual: an allusion to Malory's Tale of King Arthur. Gawain is given the task of killing a white stag.] 

I ha' seen them mid the clouds on the heather.
Lo! they pause not for love nor for sorrow,
Yet their eyes are as the eyes of a maid to her lover,
When the white hart breaks his cover
And the white wind breaks the morn.

"'Tis the white stag, Fame, we're a-hunting,
Bid the world's hounds come to horn!"
