Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  The New Poetry: An Anthology.  1917.
 
285. The Garden
 
By Ezra Pound
 
 
En robe de parade. Samain
 
 
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        5
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,        10
And is almost afraid that I
                will commit that indiscretion.
