Handout 2: To A Young Girl

William Butler Yeats (1865 — 1939), from The Wild Swans at Cooley (1919)

My dear, my dear, I know

More than another

What makes your heart beat so;

Not even your own mother

Can know it as I know,

Who broke my heart for her

When the wild thought,

That she denies

And has forgot,

Set all her blood astir

And glittered in her eyes.
