Crazy Jane On God Poem by William Butler Yeats

Crazy Jane On God

Rating: 3.0


That lover of a night
Came when he would,
Went in the dawning light
Whether I would or no;
Men come, men go;
All things remain in God.

Banners choke the sky;
Men-at-arms tread;
Armoured horses neigh
In the narrow pass:
All things remain in God.

Before their eyes a house
That from childhood stood
Uninhabited, ruinous,
Suddenly lit up
From door to top:
All things remain in God.

I had wild Jack for a lover;
Though like a road
That men pass over
My body makes no moan
But sings on:
All things remain in God.

A line is missing from the second verse. It should read... Armoured horses neigh WHERE THE GREAT BATTLE WAS In the narrow pass;
