Review of The Pool by H. D.
The Pool by H. D. (Hilda Doolittle, b. 1886) was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on January 13, 2013. The editors note that "H. D. was a leader of the Imagist movement, and her work was known for its imagery, economy of language, and use of classical mythology." The Pool certainly is representative of her work, with its haunting imagery, length of only 23 words, and subject matter evocative of mer-folk or nyads.
