Poem Title:  The Saint And The Hunchback

Poem Category:  Love 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

Hunchback. Stand up and lift your hand and bless
a man that finds great bitterness
in thinking of his lost renown.
A roman Caesar is held down
under this hump.

Saint. God tries each man
according to a different plan.
I shall not cease to bless because
I lay about me with the taws
that night and morning I may thrash
greek Alexander from my flesh,
augustus caesar, and after these
that great rogue alcibiades.

Hunchback. To all that in your flesh have stood
and blessed, I give my gratitude,
honoured by all in their degrees,
but most to alcibiades.
