innisfree lyrics – clandestine

(w.b. yeats/j. hamel)
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 morning,
to where the cricket sings.
and midnight’s all a-glimmer
and noon a purple glow
and evening’s 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 sh*r*.
while standing on the roadway,
or on the pavements gray,
i hear it in the deep heart’s core.
