William Butler Yeats. (1865–1939) (continued)

    I would mould a world of fire and dew 1 
With no one bitter, grave, or over wise,
And nothing marred or old to do you wrong.
          Land of Heart’s Desire.
8188
          Land of Heart’s Desire,
Where beauty has no ebb, decay no flood,
But joy is wisdom, Time an endless song.
          Land of Heart’s Desire.

  And butterfly suggestions,

In raiment of the white winds spun.
          Quiet.

    Some shall reap that never sow
And some shall toil and not attain.

    A moonlight traveler in Fancy’s land.
          Unqualified.
 
Note 1.
See FitzGerald: Omar Khayyám. Rubaiyat, lxxiii.

To grasp this sorry Scheme of Things entire,
  Would we not shatter it to bits—and then
Re-mould it nearer to the Heart’s Desire! [back]
