    Through many shapes; I lunged at the smooth throat

    And thereupon I drew the livid chop
    Of a drowned dripping body to my breast....

    John Bull has gone to India
    And all must pay him heed
    For histories are there to prove
    That none of another breed
    Has had a like inheritance,
    Or sucked suck milk as he....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Lovers of horses and of women, shall
    From marble of a broken sepulchre
    Or dark betwixt the polecat and the owl,
    Or any rich, dark nothing disinter
    The workman, noble and saint, and all things run
    On that fashionable gyre again.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    “Put the chair upon the grass:
    Bring Rody and his hounds,
    That I may contented pass
    From these earthly bounds.”
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    He made the world to be a grassy road
    Before her wandering feet.
    —William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
