Biography of Olin Yeats
Olin Yeats grew up reading and reciting the macabre fairy tales by the Grimm Brothers. Soon he began creating his own stories of dwarves, old forests, and sorcerers. Yeats rarely put his poems or stories on paper, but acted them out with his two younger brothers in their sixty-seven acre forest. Now authors like J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, William Shakespeare, and Jane Austen fill his bookshelves and absorb his time. He has also begun writing poems and a novel. The Olden English is a common theme. He currently lives in the mountains of North East Georgia.
Olin Yeats Poems
Hate, Love, And I
Hate by my side, Wagging his tail And wanting to be worshiped.
A Trifling Dance
My lady has a wrinkle smile, When she spots me I cannot see So I stand there blinded for a while. As I stand there like a post, she will come up to me.
Modern Context: Love
Amidst the two crowds of gay and not-gay come screams and cries Like poisoned arrows aimed to kill, Or like a savage dance bringing down the skies. Yet, who thinks to ask His will.
The Pain I Hide
I press my fingers against The rain-stained glass. My breath leaves A wet white fog.
Feelings Breaking Through
Shh don't say another word, I do not trust you, Yet....... As I look at those eyes
Bang, bang, Look at them run All look like chickens with no heads. Ha, I can make them run;
Reflections Of A Goblin Set In Stone
Oh there the flowery maiden tread, By day and not by night. On that grassy green, protecting me from light.
The Pain I Hide
I press my fingers against
The rain-stained glass.
My breath leaves
A wet white fog.
No one see my pain,
For I have hid it in my heart
And stand out in and with the rain.
