“What good is the warmth of summer,
without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”
Through winter-time we call on spring,
And through the spring on summer call,
And when abounding hedges ring
Declare that winter’s best of all;
And after that there’s nothing good
Because the spring-time has not come —
Nor know what disturbs our blood
Is but its longing for the tomb.”
W.B. Yeats, The Collected Poems of W.B. Yeats
(a tulip opens / Julie Cook /2023)
It seems the we have sprung forward only to find winter…again.
So here is yesterday vs…
He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings;
he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding;
The poetry of Yeats — lovely. 🌸
