I don't understand this poem. But I put it down in my notebook. It made me
write my own poem of Wonder, because it made me wonder. I love how Ezra
expressed his/her words in a different way. I'm happy I came to this

This poem elaborates Ezra's view on history and culture in the context of a
young woman. The world of dry dead energyless civilisation is contrasted
against the natural pagan world, symbolised by the girl.

In ancient Rome there are many examples of women turning into plants and
animals in their fiction, such as Ovid's Metamorphoses. In this context of
the ancient world this happens in the presence of a God desiring the

Here I beleive the desire is unsatisfied, and the woman eludes him by
turning into a tree. Pound the poet is represented as a God in pursuit of
the human girl. The tendency of Pound to egotistical overstatement is
subtle here. But I understand that's what got him committed in his treason
case to an insane asylum.
