Pound, Ezra: Gnómikus versek (Gnomic Verses Magyar nyelven)
Gnomic Verses (Angol)
When the roast smoked in the oven, belching out blackness,
I was bewildered and knew not what to do,
But when I was plunged in the contemplation
Of Li Po’s beautiful verses,
This thought came upon me,
When the roast smokes, pour water upon it.
