Poem Title:  The Indian To His Love

Poem Category:  Nature 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

The island dreams under the dawn
and great boughs drop tranquillity;
the peahens dance on a smooth lawn,
a parrot sways upon a tree,
raging at his own image in the enamelled sea.
Here we will moor our lonely ship
and wander ever with woven hands,
murmuring softly lip to lip,
along the grass, along the sands,
murmuring how far away are the unquiet lands:
How we alone of mortals are
hid under quiet boughs apart,
while our love grows an Indian star,
a meteor of the burning heart,
one with the tide that gleams, the wings that gleam
and dart,
the heavy boughs, the burnished dove
that moans and sighs a hundred days:
how when we die our shades will rove,
when eve has hushed the feathered ways,
with vapoury footsole by the water's drowsy blaze.
