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: 
What sort of man is coming
to lie between your feet?
What matter, we are but women.
wash; make your body sweet;
I have cupboards of dried fragrance.
I can strew the sheet.
The Lord have mercy upon us.

He shall love my soul as though
body were not at all,
he shall love your body
untroubled by the soul,
love cram love's two divisions
yet keep his substance whole.
The Lord have mercy upon us.

Soul must learn a love that is
proper to my breast,
limbs a Love in common
With every noble beast.
If soul may look and body touch,
which is the more blest?
The Lord have mercy upon us.
