Glow at Day’s End

There midnight’s all a glimmer and the noon a purple glow
And evening full of the linnet’s wing.

W B Yeats, Lake Isle of Innisfree

There’s nothing quite as relaxing as a drive along a green belt road to take in a sunset mirrored on a local lake.

 

For Peace Comes Dropping Slow

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 linnet’s wings.

William B. Yeats, Lake Isle of Innisfree

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water 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.
–William B. Yeats, Lake Isle of Innisfree
