The Balloon of the Mind

by W. B. Yeats

 

Hands, do what you're bid:

Bring the balloon of the mind

That bellies and drags in the wind

Into its narrow shed.

 

Appointed a senator of the Irish Free State in 1922, William Butler Yeats is remembered as an important cultural leader and one of the great poets of the early 20th century. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1923.
