W.B. Yeats (1865–1939).  The Wild Swans at Coole.  1919.

24. A Thought from Propertius


SHE might, so noble from head 
To great shapely knees, 
The long flowing line, 
Have walked to the altar 
Through the holy images         5
At Pallas Athene’s side, 
Or been fit spoil for a centaur 
Drunk with the unmixed wine.
