A Month With Yeats: Day Twenty-Eight

Another quote from the poem ‘He Mourns for the Change That Has Come Upon Him And His Beloved, And Longs For The End Of The World’

‘I would that the Boar without bristles had come from the West
And had rooted the sun and moon and stars out of the sky’ —W.B. Yeats

When the sun and moon link the day
Is the world full of hope or darkness?
Is the magic wand working or in doomsday?
Are we looking for hatred or can we cope?

As we walk in the woods it became darker
And the strong wind caught us in surprise
Are we going to a battle without our armour?
Do we continue even if we hear the cries?
