    Yet if it does not seem a moment’s thought,
    Our stitching and unstitching has been naught.

    The island dreams under the dawn
    And great boughs drop tranquillity;
    The peahens dance on a smooth lawn,
    A parrot sways upon a tree,
    Raging at his own image in the enamelled sea.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    And cried, ‘Before I am old
    I shall have written him one
    Poem maybe as cold
    And passionate as the dawn.’

    Toil and grow rich,
    What’s that but to lie
    With a foul witch...?
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
