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 honey-bee,

And live alone in the bee-loud  glade.

I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,

Dropping from the veils of of the morning to where the cricket sing;

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.

W.B. Yeats
