  4. 4. THE LAKE ISLE OF INNISFREEBy William Butler YeatsI will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree, And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made; Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee, And live alone in the bee-loud glade.And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes droppingslow, Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricketsings; There midnights all a-glimmer, and noon a purple glow, And evening full of the linnets wings.I will arise and go now, for always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray, I hear it in the deep hearts core.
  5. 5. • “And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings”
