A Prayer for my Daughter W.B.Yeats

books, illustration, poetry

blog page 1 blog 1A blog page 2blog  page3blog page4I don’t have daughters, but still I fouind my heart moved by Yeat’s feeling for one in his poem.

There exists a virtual museum which is absolutely wonderful to wander round if you have half an hour to spare, http://www.nli.ie/yeats/main.html.  Fully worth your while.

Yeats echoes my thoughts about youth too,

‘I am persuaded that our intellects at twenty contain all the truths we shall ever find…’

The subsequent years are honing those ideas, shaping them, flexing them.

I have used illustrations originally produced by Aubrey Beardsley to enhance the text. Hope you enjoy.
