Politics Easter, 1916I have met them at close of day Coming with vivid faces From counter or desk among grey Eighteenth century houses I have passed with a nod of the head Or polite meaningless words, Or have lingered awhile and said Polite meaningless words, And thought before I had done Of a mocking tale or a gibe To please a companion Around the fire at the club, Being certain that they and I But lived where motley is worn All changed, changed utterly A terrible beauty is born That woman s days we Easter, 1916I have met them at close of day Coming with vivid faces From counter or desk among grey Eighteenth century houses I have passed with a nod of the head Or polite meaningless words, Or have lingered awhile and said Polite meaningless words, And thought before I had done Of a mocking tale or a gibe To please a companion Around the fire at the club, Being certain that they and I But lived where motley is worn All changed, changed utterly A terrible beauty is born That woman s days were spent In ignorant good will, Her nights in argument Until her voice grew shrill What voicesweet than hers When, young and beautiful, She rode to harriers This man had kept a school And rode our wing d horse This other his helper and friend Was coming into his force He might have won fame in the end, So sensitive his nature seemed, So daring and sweet his thought This other man I had dreamed A drunken, vainglorious lout He had done most bitter wrong To some who are near my heart, Yet I number him in the song He, too, has resigned his part In the casual comedy He, too, has been changed in his turn, Transformed utterly A terrible beauty is born Hearts with one purpose alone Through summer and winter seem Enchanted to a stone To trouble the living stream The horse that comes from the road, The rider, the birds that range From cloud to tumbling cloud, Minute by minute they change A shadow of cloud on the stream Changes minute by minute A horse hoof slides on the brim, And a horse plashes within it The long legged moor hens dive, And hens to moor cocks call Minute by minute they live The stone s in the midst of all Too long a sacrifice Can make a stone of the heart O when may it suffice That is Heaven s part, our part To murmur name upon name, As a mother names her child When sleep at last has come On limbs that had run wild What is it but nightfall No, no, not night but death Was it needless death after all For England may keep faith For all that is done and said We know their dream enough To know they dreamed and are dead And what if excess of love Bewildered them till they died I write it out in a verse MacDonagh and MacBride And Connolly and Pearse Now and in time to be, Wherever green is worn, Are changed, changed utterly A terrible beauty is born Every discolouration of the stone,Every accidental crack or dent,Seems a water course or an avalanche,Or lofty slope where it still snows Though doubtless plum or cherry branchSweetens the little half way houseThose Chinamen climb towards, and IDelight to imagine them seated there There on the mountain and the sky,On all the tragic scene they stare.One asks for mournful melodies Accomplished fingers begin to play.Their eyes mid many wrinkles, their eyes,Their ancient, glittering eyes, are gaEvery discolouration of the stone,Every accidental crack or dent,Seems a water course or an avalanche,Or lofty slope where it still snows Though doubtless plum or cherry branchSweetens the little half way houseThose Chinamen climb towards, and IDelight to imagine them seated there There on the mountain and the sky,On all the tragic scene they stare.One asks for mournful melodies Accomplished fingers begin to play.Their eyes mid many wrinkles, their eyes,Their ancient, glittering eyes, are gayI am in awe of Yeats work and his deeply enthralling poems and his poetic brilliance This poetry collection has my heart, it s so beautiful in every sense of the word and is gentle, wise, heartfelt and imaginative Highly recommend it to every traditional verse loverThe fascination of what s difficult Has dried the sap out of my veins, and rentSpontaneous joy and natural content Out of my heart Though leaves are many, the root is one Through all the lying days of my youthI swayed my leaves and flowers in the sun Now I may wither in the truthYeats poems are magic My heart melts whenever I read them My favorites are When you are old Leda and the swan and A coat. I love W B Yeats s poetry, this is a very short but sweet taste of his poems Some of them concerned the Easter Rising in Ireland which I feel like some people won t understand A terrible beauty is born is the type of poetry I so love reading and I m glad I picked this up The first poem, down by the Sally gardens is also a song my dad used to sing to me and it s the first time I ve read the original poem so that was lovely. This felt somehow nice and gentle.Yeats words move along patiently, despite deeper rooted political meaning and undertones Nothing too strenuous or exacting, just the quiet tick tock of his beautiful words.A review from someone who just can t with the poetry. I ve grown to appreciate this ol Irish pessimist. I ve often said that all poetry is political This is because real poems deal with a human response to reality and politics is part of reality, history in the making Even if a poet writes about sitting in a glass house drinking tea, it reflects politics I had to think about this quote by Yehuda Amichai while reading this collection of poems.Yeat s poetry itself is beautiful in itself and I m sure you could appreciate him easily only for his mastery of language and his traditional rhymes.But I ve often said that all poetry is political This is because real poems deal with a human response to reality and politics is part of reality, history in the making Even if a poet writes about sitting in a glass house drinking tea, it reflects politics I had to think about this quote by Yehuda Amichai while reading this collection of poems.Yeat s poetry itself is beautiful in itself and I m sure you could appreciate him easily only for his mastery of language and his traditional rhymes.But for fully appreciating him and longing poems like Easter 1916 the historical context of his struggle as a passionate fighter for Irish freedom was essential, at least to me I think Yeats is just not for me.
