Самое начало полной версии "Death by Water". Без паундовских попыток редактуры.

Про моряков, поэтому превед передаётся [livejournal.com profile] old_skipper, [livejournal.com profile] taxifish и [livejournal.com profile] alf_kadett.

The sailor, attentive to the chart and to the sheets,
A concentrated will against the tempest and the tide,
Retains, even ashore, in public bars and streets
Something inhuman, clean, and dignified.

Even the drunken ruffian who descends
Illicit backstreet stairs, to reappear,
For the derision of his sober friends,
Staggering, or limping with a comic gonorrhea,

From his trade with wind and sea and snow, as they
Are, he is, with "much seen and much endured",
Foolish, impersonal, innocent or gay,
Liking to be shaved, combed, scented, manicured.

Офигенско по-моему.
