Yeats [by George Charles Beresford, 1911]

He Reproves the Curlew
by William Butler Yeats
from The Wind Among the Reeds (1899)

O curlew, cry no more in the air,
Or only to the water in the West;
Because your crying brings to my mind
passion-dimmed eyes and long heavy hair
That was shaken out over my breast:
There is enough evil in the crying of wind.
