Texture Tuesday : Nature and The Bee-loud Glade at Innisfree

One of my all-time favorite poems, by one of my all-time favorite poets.  Yeats is an old friend to me.
The Texture Tuesday theme this week is Nature.  I took this photo with my brand new "big-girl" camera on a nature walk last fall.  It really does a nice job--which makes me wonder why I don't go out more often ...

I knew I wanted to use the photo of this bee working a thistle.  And as I thought about it, Yeat's  bee-loud glade at Innisfree kept coming into my mind.

Enjoy your trip to :

The Lake Isle of Innisfree

By William Butler Yeats
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 the morning to where the cricket sings;

There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,

And evening 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 shore;

While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,

I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
