A Man Young And Old: V. The Empty Cup

Written by: William Butler Yeats | Biography
 | Quotes (173) |
 A crazy man that found a cup,
When all but dead of thirst,
Hardly dared to wet his mouth
Imagining, moon-accursed,
That another mouthful
And his beating heart would burst.
October last I found it too But found it dry as bone, And for that reason am I crazed And my sleep is gone.
