St. Patrick heard the voice of the Irish calling to him, saying, "Come holy boy and walk amongst us again."

W.B. Yeats was born on this day. What's your favorite Yeats poem? Here is mine. I especially like the first half. It gets a little pessimistic in the second half, but that's Yeats, and well, sometimes that's life too. But what I like is the image it forms so perfectly in my head. The carefree child, celebrating life. If only we could hold on to some of that as we age.
