William Butler Yeats

(13 June 1865 – 28 January 1939 / County Dublin / Ireland)

His Confidence


Undying love to buy
I wrote upon
The corners of this eye
All wrongs done.
What payment were enough
For undying love?

I broke my heart in two
So hard I struck.
What matter? for I know
That out of rock,
Out of a desolate source,
Love leaps upon its course.
