Poem Title:  On Woman

Poem Category:  General Poems

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: 
May god be praised for woman
that gives up all her mind,
a man may find in no man
a friendship of her kind
that covers all he has brought
as with her flesh and bone,
nor quarrels with a thought
because it is not her own.
Though pedantry denies,
it's plain the Bible means
that Solomon grew wise
while talking with his queens.
Yet never could, although
they say he counted grass,
count all the praises due
when Sheba was his lass,
when she the iron wrought, or
when from the smithy fire
it shuddered in the water:
harshness of their desire
that made them stretch and yawn,
pleasure that comes with sleep,
shudder that made them one.
What else He give or keep
god grant me
