  • Rookie quercus : I've never got paid for my hits... (2/12/2007 2:41:00 PM)

    Passion for something or someone we love at times may go hand in hand with madness - some kind of temporary state of excessive excitement which enables us to face most difficult challenges and meet them exploring our talents and capabilities...
    I believe THAT crazed girl was seen in the moment of creating something she was passionate about. It was the moment of an artistic ecstasy pushing her into another state – the state of an extreme concentration which made her become insensitive to everything that surrounded her… I find this write rather beautiful…Awesome work :) (Report) Reply

    Divided by disaster...That poem is incredibly strong and touching.As divided ones could look for beauty and lonesome places to scape from 'NORMALITY' or just keep distance from reality...if everyone will look at madness as he did it would be less cruelty and unmisericordy on this reasonable world.More beauty and madness, I hope so.

    I think this poem is sad indeed. He is writing about someone whom seems to have lost her self. (crazed girl) . Only looking from the outside and only observing the person. People do the craziet things sometimes, when your insecure. (Report) Reply

    This poem spoke - no, almost shouted from the rooftops - to me. I am going through some serious personal issues in my life at this time and I so resonate with this poem, it's almost frightenening. I think it's beautiful, and sad, and so full of truth. Thanks for having it on your site. I thought I knew Yeats pretty well, but it's the first I've seen of this, and I'll memorize it forever. (Report) Reply

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
