W.B. Yeats (1865–1939).  Responsibilities and Other Poems.  1916.

7. Paudeen


INDIGNANT at the fumbling wits, the obscure spite 
Of our old Paudeen in his shop, I stumbled blind 
Among the stones and thorn trees, under morning light; 
Until a curlew cried and in the luminous wind 
A curlew answered; and suddenly thereupon I thought         5
That on the lonely height where all are in God’s eye, 
There cannot be, confusion of our sound forgot, 
A single soul that lacks a sweet crystaline cry.
