‘I would that the Boar without bristles had come from the West
And had rooted the sun and moon and stars out of the sky’ —W.B. Yeats

 

crows’ flight

tied to my post, waiting

for my enemies

denying the Morrigu

dropping my sword at last

 

for Jane Dougherty’s a Month with Yeats: Day twenty-eight
