Transcript of The Garden by Ezra Pound

"The Garden" Ezra Pound Born in Hailey, Idaho on October 30, 1885 BIO IMAGISM Writing Style Common Themes Writing Style continued Like a skein of loose silk blown against a wall
She walks by the railing of a path in Kensington Gardens,
And she is dying piece-meal
of a sort of emotional anemia.

And round about there is a rabble
Of the filthy, sturdy, unkillable infants of the very poor.
They shall inherit the earth.

In her is the end of breeding.
Her boredom is exquisite and excessive.
She would like some one to speak to her,
And is almost afraid that I
will commit that indiscretion.
