Youth And Age

MUCH did I rage when young,
Being by the world oppressed,
But now with flattering tongue
It speeds the parting guest.

    Short but sinnificant in substance as it shows clearly truth that with age development and matutiry increase.

    I disagree with Cs, I believe much wisdom is to be found in this tiny poem by the dean of English language writers.

  • Cs Vishwanathan (12/6/2010 4:27:00 AM)

    This poem has significance only because it is from Yeats. The third line is meaningful only because Yeats is in the context.

  • Robert Leary (12/6/2009 8:35:00 AM)

    I identify with this and give it a 10...just don't have the glasses yet!

    It is a happening matter. A sensitive youngster with genuine heart and intellect has such a state of life during the course of one's life's journey!

    No waste of words from Yeats.
