And The Days Are Not Full Enough

And the days are not full enough
And the nights are not full enough
And life slips by like a field mouse
Not shaking the grass

       Ezra Pound

 

Ezra Pound (1885-1972) was an expatriate American modernist poet. You can find more information about him – and more poems by him – here.

* Yes, I know that’s cheating. But it’s day 26, and I really like this poem, and Zebra and Zephyr just didn’t appeal as much. So I hope you enjoyed the poem.
