The Lake Isle Of Innisfree

Words by William Butler Yeats
Adapted and set to music by Hamilton Camp

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 gray,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.

Super realistic and vintage in the vignetting.

Good illustration for your chosen poem.

I didn't recognize the poem but have looked it up and enjoyed reading it. Thank you.

Lake Isle of Innisfree" - William Butler Yeats
Eerie. I'm not fond of the lens hood corners (I guess that's what it is?) Voted earlier.

That must be Yeats?

I guess you have the high key and soft focus thing going on here, but the image isn't doing a whole lot for me.
