Do not trust morning's shadows.
In midday they lose their echos,
and nights laugh at proud egos.
NIGHTS LAUGH AT PROUD EGOS - Whether the day of this poem is the 24-hour day or representative of
a whole life, the point is the same; Human beings do not have the breadth of experience over vast eons of time
of gods and goddesses, and so they misjudge their own worth and wisdom. That makes them heroes but also places a tragedy within each of them. Yeats was sensitive to this: he wrote, NOW HIS WARS ON GOD BEGIN, /AT STROKE OF MIDNIGHT GOD SHALL WIN.
Beautiful, much enjoyed.

Clever the comment my dear, thank you so much.We do give our life's struggle to know the world around us going through shadows, sometimes through our own shadows!
In the twilight of life man is lonely, even his own shadow leaves him. A very profound work that sums up life in just three lines.
Thank you, Nosheen, for the kind words.Sometimes we do trust them and then happens what my ''Midday's shadows'' describe.
