Poem Title:  The Dolls

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

A doll in the doll-maker's house
looks at the cradle and bawls:
"That is an insult to us.'
But the oldest of all the dolls,
who had seen, being kept for show,
generations of his sort,
out-screams the whole shelf: 'Although
there's not a man can report
evil of this place,
the man and the woman bring
hither, to our disgrace,
a noisy and filthy thing.'
hearing him groan and stretch
the doll-maker's wife is aware
her husband has heard the wretch,
and crouched by the arm of his chair,
she murmurs into his ear,
head upon shoulder leant:
"My dear, my dear, O dear.
It was an accident.'
