Under Bare Benbulben’s Head



Under Bare Benbulben’s Head

Under bare Ben Bulben’s head

In Drumcliff churchyard Yeats is laid,   

An ancestor was rector there

Long years ago; a church stands near,

By the road an ancient Cross.

No marble, no conventional phrase,   

On limestone quarried near the spot   

By his command these words are cut:

    Cast a cold eye   

     On life, on death. 

    Horseman, Pass By!  

WB Yeats
