Poem Title:  Three Things

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

`O cruel Death, give three things back,'
sang a bone upon the shore;
`a child found all a child can lack,
whether of pleasure or of rest,
upon the abundance of my breast':
a bone wave-whitened and dried in the wind.

`Three dear things that women know,'
sang a bone upon the shore;
`a man if I but held him so
when my body was alive
found all the pleasure that life gave':
A bone wave-whitened and dried in the wind.

`The third thing that I think of yet,'
sang a bone upon the shore,
`is that morning when I met
face to face my rightful man
and did after stretch and yawn':
a bone wave-whitened and dried in the wind.
