William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was born in Dublin.

Colleen chose a quote this week to remind us that “fairies leave magic for humans – to remind them of the beauty of nature.” Yeats poetry captures this need.

Tanka by Meredith

I’m seized, trapped, entangled
In the world’s cacophony
Flustered, befuddled
Fairies offer me escape
Soar over mountains and stream
