Salutation

Written by: Ezra Pound | Biography
 | Quotes (44) |
 In one salutation to thee, my God, 
let all my senses spread out and touch this world at thy feet. 

Like a rain-cloud of July 
hung low with its burden of unshed showers 
let all my mind bend down at thy door in one salutation to thee. 

Let all my songs gather together their diverse strains into a single current 
and flow to a sea of silence in one salutation to thee. 

Like a flock of homesick cranes flying night and day 
back to their mountain nests 
let all my life take its voyage to its eternal home 
in one salutation to thee.
