On His Own Face in a Glass
by Ezra Pound

from A Lume Spento (published in 1908 by A. Antonini)

O strange face there in the glass!
O ribald company, O saintly host,
O sorrow-swept my fool,
What answer? O ye myriad
That strive and play and pass,
Jest, challenge, counterlie!
I? I? I?
            And ye?
