The Sorrow Of Love

Rating: 4.5
THE brawling of a sparrow in the eaves,
The brilliant moon and all the milky sky,
And all that famous harmony of leaves,
Had blotted out man's image and his cry.

And seemed the greatness of the world in tears,
Doomed like Odysseus and the labouring ships
And proud as Priam murdered with his peers;
Arose, and on the instant clamorous eaves,
A climbing moon upon an empty sky,
And all that lamentation of the leaves,

Here the simple lines capture the story of an Irish legend, Angus the god of water, and the endless search for beauty

The pangs of love marvelously woven in a beautiful verse that is rich in rhythm and rhyme.

The brilliant moon and all the milky sky, And all that famous harmony of leaves, Had blotted out man's image and his cry. A girl arose that had red mournful lips And seemed the greatness of the world in tears... A superb creation of poetry. I enjoyed readng it.

I love this poem! My favorite of Yeats, but this is the wrong version- not at all like the one I had read in an anthology, and not nearly so beautiful.

This poem stirred my mind and imagination with it's imagery and a stilted rhythm, not quite flowing. Good poem! RoseAnn
