William Butler Yeats

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

The Dancer At Cruachan And Cro-Patrick


I, proclaiming that there is
Among birds or beasts or men
One that is perfect or at peace.
Danced on Cruachan's windy plain,
Upon Cro-patrick sang aloud;
All that could run or leap or swim
Whether in wood, water or cloud,
Acclaiming, proclaiming, declaiming Him.

Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.
