When you are old: poem of the day

WHEN YOU ARE OLDBy William Butler Yeats When you are old and gray and full of sleep And nodding by the fire, take down this book, And slowly read, and dream of the soft look Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep; How many loved your moments of glad grace, And loved yourContinue reading “When you are old: poem of the day”
