PEACE COMES DROPPING SLOW

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
     And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honey bee,
     And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping
     slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket
     sings;
There midnight’s all a-glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
     And evening full of the linnet’s wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I sand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,
     I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
William Butler Yeats, The Lake Isle of Innisfree, 1856-1939
