Poet:  William Butler Yeats

Poet Biography: 
William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was a poet whose influences include The Occult, symbolism and Irish political independance



Poem:

and birthdays and holidays such praises can be heard
of her unblemished lineaments, a whiteness with no
stain,
that she might be that sprightly girl trodden by a

and Ruth St. Denis had more charm although she had

and flings herself out of the room when Juliet would
be bride
with all a woman's passion, a child's imperious way,
and there are
