Тусовочка (Mœurs Contemporaines)

From Mœurs Contemporaines
by Ezra Pound

III.

Soirée

Upon learning that the mother wrote verses,
And that the father wrote verses,
And that the youngest son was in a publisher's office,
And that the friend of the second daughter was undergoing a novel,
The young American pilgrim
Exclaimed:
“This is a darn'd clever bunch!”
