Yeats [by George Charles Beresford, 1911]
The Pity of Love
by William Butler Yeats
from The Rose (1893)
A pity beyond all telling
Is hid in the heart of love:
The folk who are buying and selling,
The clouds on their journey above,
The cold wet winds ever blowing,
And the shadowy hazel grove
Where mouse-grey waters are flowing,
Threaten the head that I love.
