Phlebas the Phoenician, a fortnight dead,
Forgot the cry of gulls, and the deep seas swell
And the profit and loss.
A current under sea
Picked his bones in whispers.
As he rose and fell
He passed the stages of his age and youth
Entering the whirlpool.
Gentile or Jew
O you who turn the wheel and look to windward,
Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.

Non sono anco estinti
gli spirti in voi di quel valor primiero,
quando di ferro e d' alte fiamme cinti
pugnammo già contra il celeste impero.
Fummo, io no 'l nego, in quel conflitto vinti,
pur non mancò virtute al gran pensiero.
Diede che che si fosse a lui vittoria:
rimase a noi d' invitto ardir la gloria.
E se quindi il mio stuol vinto cadeo,
Il tentar l'alte imprese è pur trofeo.
