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.
