In Drumcliffe Churchyard - Yeats' Resting Place

Poetry Thursday participants have shared poems of W.B. Yeats from time to time. There is one of my favourites posted this week at Jen's Page. I visited Yeats' grave last week, and thought you might like a chance to pay your respects, so here are some of the pictures I took.

















The famous epitaph reads:


..................Cast a cold eye

...............On Life on Death

...............Horseman, pass by

Thanks. I think of Yeats as magical, in the sense that he reaches inside to the part of us that sees deep beyond the surface.
