The Seeing Eye

Ezra Pound

 Next Poem          

The small dogs look at the big dogs;
They observe unwieldy dimensions
And curious imperfections of odor.
Here is the formal male group:
The young men look upon their seniors,
They consider the elderly mind
And observe its inexplicable correlations.

Said Tsin-Tsu:
It is only in small dogs and the young
That we find minute observation

    Really hit home for me, this poem. Makes you think about the different perspectives in life, like how youngsters see oldies and small dogs see big ones. I like its 'to-the-point' vibe and deep sense of truthfulness. Actually kind of open my eyes a bit.
