THE ROSE 1893 By William Butler Yeats poem lyrics. Easy summary meaning. Selected sweat best popular poem for School and college student


A FAERY SONG

 

WE who are old, old and gay,1

 

O so old!

 

Thousands of years, thousands of years,

 

If all were told:

 

Give to these children, new from the world,

 

Silence and love;

 

And the long dew-dropping hours of the night,

 

And the stars above:

 

Give to these children, new from the world,

 

Rest far from men.

 

Is anything better, anything better?

 

Tell us it then:

 

Us who are old, old and gay,

 

O so old!

 

Thousands of years, thousands of years,

 

If all were told.

 

THE LAKE ISLE OF INNISFREE

 

 

I WILL arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,

 

And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made:

 

Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee,

 

And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

 

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, Dropping from the veils of the mourning to where the cricket sings; There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,

 

And evening full of the linnet's wings.

 

I will arise and go now, for always night and day

 

I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;

 

While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,

 

I hear it in the deep heart's core.

 

        A CRADLE SONG

 

 

THE angels are stooping

 

Above your bed;

 

They weary of trooping

 

With the whimpering dead.

 

God's laughing in Heaven

 

To see you so good;

 

The Sailing Seven

 

Are gay with His mood.

I sigh that kiss you,

 

For I must own

 

That I shall miss you

 

When you have grown.
