The Author William Butler Yeats

The Lovers Song


Bird sighs for the air,
Thought for I know not where,
For the womb the seed sighs.
Now sinks the same rest
On mind, on nest,
On straining thighs.

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.
