Yeats [by George Charles Beresford, 1911]


On Hearing That the Students of Our New University
Have Joined the Agitation against Immoral Literature 
by William Butler Yeats

from The Green Helmet and Other Poems  [Dundrum: Cuala Press, 1910]

Where, where but here have Pride and Truth,
That long to give themselves for wage,
To shake their wicked sides at youth
Restraining reckless middle-age?
