William Butler Yeats (Уильям Батлер Йейтс)


A Prayer for Old Age


God guard me from those thoughts men think
In the mind alone;
He that sings a lasting song
Thinks in a marrow-bone;

From all that makes a wise old man
That can be praised of all;
O what am I that I should not seem
For the song's sake a fool?

I pray -- for word is out
And prayer comes round again --
That I may seem, though I die old,
A foolish, passionate man.

  2. The Municipal Gallery Revisited
  3. To Be Carved on a Stone at Ballylee
  4. An Acre of Grass
  5. Parnell's Funeral
