Poetry Friday: The Pity of Love by William Butler Yeats

February 12th, 2016 (06:00 am)

Current Mood: sleepy
Current Song: Leverage score music by Joseph LoDuca

A pity beyond all telling
Is hid in the heart of love:
The folk who are buying and selling,
The clouds on their journey above,
The cold, wet winds ever blowing,
And the shadowy hazel grove
Where mouse-grey waters are flowing
Threaten the head that I love.

- The Pity of Love by William Butler Yeats

There's always some bitter mixed in with the sweet, eh?
