WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.
How sad that that was all he knew of truth, and to die so young so sad.
You must be young, you have not understood the simplicity of the poem. I am restraining myself from calling you stupid.
Short and accurate, perfect.
Simply terrific, i.e. both simple and terrific.Beauty is perceived as truth thanks to el vino. Yeats is saying that's all we know on earth, and all we need to know.The qualities here characterise some of his best poems, especially those of the last period of his life.
short and expansive at the same time....loved is way of expressing....
Maybe all humanity should do it...why don't they?
Little package, greater on the inside. I like the shorter Yeats. People who have too much on their minds must keep it at bay, or fall in a bay of disarray and contradiction in terms, although truth is involved.
Beautiful poem piece. Love this Yeats brand wine
Wine comes at mouth and
Love comes in at the eye"
Outstanding flight of imagery and equally outstanding style of expression.
I like it the poem
