I HAVE drunk ale from the Country of the Young
And weep because I know all things now:
I have been a hazel-tree, and they hung
The Pilot Star and the Crooked Plough

This lovely poem opens with a strange couplet: I HAVE drunk ale from the Country of the Young And weep because I know all things now“ and goes on to capture “all things”... The poem, although so small, unfolds in its beauty.. to close with these lines “Must I endure your amorous cries? ” Great! ! !
