THE LAKE ISLE OF INNISFREE BY W. B. YEATS

The Lake Isle of Innisfree

Thanks!



I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin there, of clay and wattles made:
Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for honey bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes
dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the
cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore,
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.

W. B. Yeats

W. B Yeats is a talented poet whose love poetry was influenced
by his love for a lovely lady. Many of his poems evolved out
of his admiration for her beauty.
The poem "The Lake Isle Of Innisfree" pictured a romantic yearning.
It depicts an aura of his feelings; that which he is longing for.
Yeats was awarded Nobel Prize for poetry in 1923.
