Forgetting Even Her Beauty

Impressions Of Francois-Marie Arouet (De Voltaire) written and read by Ezra Pound
To Madame Lullin

You’ll wonder that an old man of eighty
Can go on writing you verses. . . .

Grass showing under the snow,
Birds singing late in the year!

And Tibullus could say of his death, in his Latin:
‘Delia, I would look on you, dying.’

And Delia herself fading out,
Forgetting even her beauty.

Much beauty can be cultivated in 80 years... and perhaps true beauty always forgets itself.

That is most touching, yes, most touching. With fading eyesight she looks out on a world through a net curtain, not noticing! The music was perfect.

The panning enriches the intro wonderfully. Very cool sounds.
