    Yes, William Butler Yeats was the guy who did cleaning kitchen floor at his spare times, more than write his poems. It was the real fact as described in his poem. Very descriptive in his life. He was willing to clean the floor when he did not get any ideas in the poetry. Very good and true in the fact. This is one of his most excellent poems as we can read. I like its real talk to his female friend with this poem, I offer it with 10 marks sure! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
