There's a dance in Billy Brennan's barn to-night,
And there's the half-talk code of mysteries

    Kavanagh demonstrates his detachment from the social world of rural Ireland through his imagery. He is isolated and lonley but only so he can preform his duties as a poet. He has voluntarily abandoned this world. (Report) Reply

I heard the bells on Christmas day

Of peace on earth, good will to men.
