William Butler Yeats (Уильям Батлер Йейтс)


After Long Silence


Speech after long silence; it is right,
All other lovers being estranged or dead,
Unfriendly lamplight hid under its shade,
The curtains drawn upon unfriendly night,
That we descant and yet again descant
Upon the supreme theme of Art and Song:
Bodily decrepitude is wisdom; young
We loved each other and were ignorant. 



William Butler Yeats's other poems:
  1. The Blessed
  2. Dream of a Blessed Spirit
  3. A Prayer for Old Age
  4. Crazy Jane Talks with the Bishop
  5. Men Improve with the Years
