“April” by Ezra Pound

Robert Frost’s poetry began to receive attention after he returned to New Hampshire in 1915. This attention is largely credited to Ezra Pound. As part of National Poetry Month, we are dedicating April 3 to Ezra Pound with his poem, “April.”


By Ezra Pound

THREE spirits came to me

And drew me apart

To where the olive boughs

Lay stripped upon the ground:

Pale carnage beneath bright mist.

*Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936). Poetry: A Magazine of Verse. 1912–22.
