Yeats, William Butler: [Down…]*

Yeats, William Butler portréja

[Down…]* (Angol)

Down by the salley** gardens

   my love and I did meet;

She passed the salley gardens

   with little snow-white feet.

She bid me take love easy,

   as the leaves grow on the tree;

But I, being young and foolish,

   with her did not agree.

 

In a field by the river

   my love and I did stand,

And on my leaning shoulder

   she placed her snow-white hand.

She bid me take life easy,

   as the grass grows on the weirs;

But I was young and foolish,

   and now am full of tears.

 

* First published as 'An Old Song Resung' in The Wanderings of Oisin and other Poems (1889). Originally an old Irish folk song, Yeats turned this into a poem as a dedication to oral tradition.

**Salley= Willow
