Lake Isle of Inisfree
- I will arise and go now, and go to Inisfree,
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 Linnit’s wings.
- I will arise and go now, for always night and day,
I hear lake waters lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
