Father and Child a poem
by William Butler Yeats

Biography, poems and picture William Butler Yeats

 

She hears me strike the board and say
That she is under ban
Of all good men and women,
Being mentioned with a man
That has the worst of all bad names;
And thereupon replies
That his hair is beautiful,
Cold as the March wind his eyes.
