'Her Anxiety' - W.B Yeats

Sunday Night Poetry.

Dusk is falling, cue Sunday night feelings and a quiet night ahead of a busy week. I hope you enjoy this poem, it's beautifully melancholic and timeless..

Her Anxiety by W.B Yeats

Earth in beauty dressed

Awaits returning spring.
All true love must die,
Alter at the best
Into some lesser thing.
Prove that I lie.

Such body lovers have,
Such exacting breath,
That they touch or sigh.
Every touch they give,
Love is nearer death.
Prove that I lie.
