A Month With Yeats: Day Thirty

from ‘The Lake Isle of Innisfree’

“And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,” —W.B. Yeats


The oasis of serenity when everything’s at peace
When things go the other way and I’m still in one piece
Blue sky with cotton like clouds, calm sea, green grass
The sun so strong and I have to wear my sunglasses
Birds flying and singing above me, ah, this is heaven!
I’m distinct and I could feel that I’m one in a billion
The joy of being here, the freedom I feel of love and bliss
And my knight just came back to give me a kiss
This is my favourite place when I want to be alone
For sins I have done, a quiet place to atone
When I want to say thanks for all the blessing I get
Life is wonderful and I have no regret
Or when I want to drown my sorrow and pain
Learn my lesson and get up again
