W.B. Yeats (1865–1939).  The Wind Among the Reeds.  1899.

18. A Poet to his Beloved


I BRING you with reverent hands 
The books of my numberless dreams; 
White woman that passion has worn 
As the tide wears the dove-gray sands, 
And with heart more old than the horn         5
That is brimmed from the pale fire of time: 
White woman with numberless dreams 
I bring you my passionate rhyme.
