    The hare grows old as she plays in the sun
    And gazes around her with eyes of brightness;
    Before the swift things that she dreamed of were done
    She limps along in an aged whiteness....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    O you will take whatever’s offered
    And dream that all the world’s a friend,
    Suffer as your mother suffered,
    Be as broken in the end.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    ‘But where can we draw water,’
    Said Pearse to Connolly,
    ‘When all the wells are parched away?
    O plain as plain can be
    There’s nothing but our own red blood
    Can make a right Rose Tree.’
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    I can exchange opinion with any neighbouring mind,
    I have as healthy flesh and blood as any rhymer’s had,
    But O! my Heart could bear no more when the upland caught the wind;
    I ran, I ran, from my love’s side because my Heart went mad.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
