The Author William Butler Yeats

The Realists


    Hope that you may understand!
    What can books of men that wive
    In a dragon-guarded land,
    Paintings of the dolphin-drawn
    Sea-nymphs in their pearly waggons
    Do, but awake a hope to live
    That had gone
    With the dragons?

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.
