Poem Title:  To Dorothy Wellesley

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: 
Stretch towards the moonless midnight of the trees,
as though that hand could reach to where they stand,
and they but famous old upholsteries
delightful to the touch; tighten that hand
as though to draw them closer yet.
Rammed full
of that most sensuous silence of the night
(for since the horizon's bought strange dogs are still)
climb to your chamber full of books and wait,
no books upon the knee, and no one there
but a great dane that cannot bay the moon
and now lies sunk in sleep.
What climbs the stair?
Nothing that common women ponder on
if you are worth my hope! Neither content
nor satisfied conscience, but that great family
some ancient famous authors misrepresent,
the proud furies each with her torch on high.
