 The wind blows out of the gates of the day,The wind blows over the lonely of heart,And the lonely of heart is withered away.While the faeries dance in a place apart,Shaking their milk-white feet in a ring,Tossing their milk-white arms in the airFor they hear the wind laugh and murmur and singOf a land where even the old are fair,And even the wise are merry of tongueBut I heard a reed of Coolaney say,When the wind has laughed and murmured and sungThe lonely of heart is withered away
WB Yeats
The Land of Heart’s Desire(1912)

The Land of Heart’s Desire(1912)

 The wind blows out of the gates of the day,
The wind blows over the lonely of heart,
And the lonely of heart is withered away.
While the faeries dance in a place apart,
Shaking their milk-white feet in a ring,
Tossing their milk-white arms in the air
For they hear the wind laugh and murmur and sing
Of a land where even the old are fair,
And even the wise are merry of tongue
But I heard a reed of Coolaney say,
When the wind has laughed and murmured and sung
The lonely of heart is withered away
