153. The Pity of Love
 
By William Butler Yeats
 
 
A PITY beyond all telling
Is hid in the heart of love:
The folk who are buying and selling,
The clouds on their journey above,
The cold, wet winds ever blowing,        5
And the shadowy hazel grove
Where mouse-grey waters are flowing
Threaten the head that I love.
