„The unavailing outcries and the old bitterness
That empty the heart.“

—  W.B. Yeats
In The Seven Woods (1904), Context: I have heard the pigeons of the Seven Woods Make their faint thunder, and the garden bees Hum in the lime-tree flowers; and put away The unavailing outcries and the old bitterness That empty the heart. I have forgot awhile Tara uprooted, and new commonness Upon the throne and crying about the streets And hanging its paper flowers from post to post, Because it is alone of all things happy. I am contented, for I know that Quiet Wanders laughing and eating her wild heart Among pigeons and bees, while that Great Archer, Who but awaits His house to shoot, still hands A cloudy quiver over Pairc-na-lee.

„But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams beneath your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.“

—  W.B. Yeats, The Wind Among the Reeds
The Wind Among the Reeds (1899), Context: Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths, Enwrought with the golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams beneath your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/1499/

„Come near, come near, come near — Ah, leave me still
A little space for the rose-breath to fill!“

—  W.B. Yeats
The Rose (1893), Context: Come near, come near, come near — Ah, leave me still A little space for the rose-breath to fill! Lest I no more hear common things that crave; The weak worm hiding down in its small cave, The field-mouse running by me in the grass, And heavy mortal hopes that toil and pass; But seek alone to hear the strange things said By God to the bright hearts of those long dead, And learn to chaunt a tongue men do not know. Come near; I would, before my time to go, Sing of old Eire and the ancient ways: Red Rose, proud Rose, sad Rose of all my days. To The Rose Upon The Rood Of Time

„Time can but make it easier to be wise
Though now it seems impossible, and so
All that you need is patience.“

—  W.B. Yeats
In The Seven Woods (1904), Context: One that is ever kind said yesterday: 'Your well-belovéd's hair has threads of grey, And little shadows come about her eyes; Time can but make it easier to be wise Though now it seems impossible, and so All that you need is patience.' Heart cries, 'No, I have not a crumb of comfort, not a grain. Time can but make her beauty over again: Because of that great nobleness of hers The fire that stirs about her, when she stirs, Burns but more clearly. O she had not these ways When all the wild summer was in her gaze.' O heart! O heart! if she'd but turn her head, You'd know the folly of being comforted. The Folly Of Being Comforted http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/1623/

„She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs;
But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.“

—  W.B. Yeats
Crossways (1889), Context: p>Down by the salley gardens my love and I did meet; She passed the salley gardens with little snow-white feet. She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree; But I, being young and foolish, with her would not agree.In a field by the river my love and I did stand, And on my leaning shoulder she laid her snow-white hand. She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs; But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.</p Down By The Salley Gardens http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/1476/

„Yet she, singing upon her road,
Half lion, half child, is at peace.“

—  W.B. Yeats
The Green Helmet and Other Poems (1910), Context: p>O heart, be at peace, because Nor knave nor dolt can break What's not for their applause Being for a woman's sake. Enough if the work has seemed, So did she your strength renew, A dream that a lion had dreamed Till the wilderness cried aloud, A secret between you two, Between the proud and the proud.What, still you would have their praise! But here's a haughtier text, The labyrinth of her days That her own strangeness perplexed; And how what her dreaming gave Earned slander, ingratitude, From self-same dolt and knave; Aye, and worse wrong than these. Yet she, singing upon her road, Half lion, half child, is at peace.</p Against Unworthy Praise http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/1433/

„He that sings a lasting song
Thinks in a marrow-bone.“

—  W.B. Yeats
A Full Moon in March (1935), Context: God guard me from those thoughts men think In the mind alone; He that sings a lasting song Thinks in a marrow-bone. A Prayer For Old Age http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/1423/, st. 1.

„What matter that no cannon had been turned
Into a ploughshare?“

—  W.B. Yeats, libro The Tower
The Tower (1928), Nineteen Hundred And Nineteen http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/1547/, Context: All teeth were drawn, all ancient tricks unlearned, And a great army but a showy thing; What matter that no cannon had been turned Into a ploughshare? I, st. 3

„Speech after long silence; it is right“

—  W.B. Yeats, libro The Winding Stair and Other Poems
The Winding Stair and Other Poems (1933), Context: Speech after long silence; it is right, All other lovers being estranged or dead, Unfriendly lamplight hid under its shade, The curtains drawn upon unfriendly night, That we descant and yet again descant Upon the supreme theme of Art and Song: Bodily decrepitude is wisdom; young We loved each other and were ignorant. After Long Silence http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/1432/
