Oh You There


Oh you there you pen such good rhyme
You would have known fame in a by gone time
But in this the age of the non rhyme poet
You are not seen as one worthy of note.

In so few words so much you say
With words you surely have a way
Of language you have a great command
And your poems not hard to understand

Your Nature poems I do like best
Of how birds in Spring-time build their nest
In hole in bank or old stump cavity
Or on ground or fork of branch of tree.

Whilst few have heard of you by name
And others enjoy greater fame
I read a poem of your's each night
And I enjoy reading the stuff you write.

Oh you untainted by conceit
One like you don't live on every street
You've never penned a slipshod line
And you've matured well like good wine.

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
