William Butler Yeats

(13 June 1865 – 28 January 1939 / County Dublin / Ireland)

Love Song


My love, we will go, we will go, I and you,
And away in the woods we will scatter the dew;
And the salmon behold, and the ousel too,
My love, we will hear, I and you, we will hear,
The calling afar of the doe and the deer.
And the bird in the branches will cry for us clear,
And the cuckoo unseen in his festival mood;
And death, oh my fair one, will never come near
In the bosom afar of the fragrant wood.

And, when I crossed the wild,
I chanced to see at break of day
The solitary child.
