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: 
I went out to the hazel wood,
because a fire was in my head,
and cut and peeled a hazel wand,
and hooked a berry to a thread;
and when white moths were on the wing,
and moth-like stars were flickering out,
I dropped the berry in a stream
and caught a little silver trout.
When I had laid it on the floor
I went to blow the fire aflame,
but something rustled on the floor,
and some one called me by my name:
It had become a glimmering girl
with apple blossom in her hair
who called me by my name and ran
and faded through the brightening air.
Though I am old with wandering
through hollow lads and hilly lands.
I will find out where she has gone,
and kiss her lips and take her hands;
and walk among long dappled grass,
and pluck till time and times are done
the silver apples of the moon,
the golden apples of the sun.
