A Month With Yeats: Day Twenty-Nine

Coming to the end of the month with a quote that opens up a lot of possibilities. This one is from ‘No Second Troy’.

‘Why, what could she have done, being what she is?
Was there another Troy for her to burn?’—W.B. Yeats


She might not know it, but her beauty astounds everyone
Second to none, men of courage fight for her sun
Who could blame them for she is such of noble desire
Her equal splendour both inside and outside to admire
Is this woman real or just a fiction?

All these affection she just wants to shun
As normal as she could live, she needs to have fun
She could also be shallow, like she’s worried of her attire
She might not know it

Of sound mind, she likes to have a bargain
And of course, she likes the day to brighten
For stones, she likes emerald and sapphire
And one day, she likes her own knight or esquire
And men battle for her, be they soldier or captain
She might not know it*
