The Moods - Poem by William Butler Yeats

TIME drops in decay,
Like a candle burnt out,
And the mountains and woods
Have their day, have their day;
What one in the rout
Of the fire-born moods
Has fallen away?

    Have their day, have their day;
    What one in the rout
    Of the fire-born moods
    Has fallen away?

    Like a candle burnt out, ......a truthbound- good- to- read poem
