The Seeing Eye
By Ezra Pound
THE SMALL dogs look at the big dogs;
They observe unwieldly dimensions
And curious imperfections of odor.
Here is a formal male group:
The young men look upon their seniors,        5
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.        10
