The Living Beauty

Written by: William Butler Yeats | Biography
 | Quotes (173) |
 I bade, because the wick and oil are spent
And frozen are the channels of the blood,
My discontented heart to draw content
From beauty that is cast out of a mould
In bronze, or that in dazzling marble appears,
Appears, but when wc have gone is gone again,
Being more indifferent to our solitude
Than 'twere an apparition.
O heart, we are old; The living beauty is for younger men: We cannot pay its rribute of wild tears.
