The Author William Butler Yeats

A Deep-sworn Vow


Others because you did not keep
That deep-sworn vow have been friends of mine;
Yet always when I look death in the face,
When I clamber to the heights of sleep,
Or when I grow excited with wine,
Suddenly I meet your face.

It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.
