  I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree ...


The Lake Isle of Innisfree
W. B. Yeats


I 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 honey-bee;
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.


And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes
          dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the
          cricket sings;
There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet’s 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 grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.

“Christ with me, Christ before me,
          Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me,
          Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when
I sit down, Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man
          who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man
          who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength,
          the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the Threeness,
Through confession of the oneness,
Of the Creator of the Creation.”


                                       From “St. Patrick’s Breastplate”
