Under The Round Tower Analysis

Author: poem of William Butler Yeats Type: poem Views: 25

'Although I'd lie lapped up in linen

A deal I'd sweat and little earn

If I should live as live the neighbours,'

Cried the beggar, Billy Byrne;

'Stretch bones till the daylight come

On great-grandfather's battered tomb.'

Upon a grey old battered tombstone

In Glendalough beside the stream

Where the O'Byrnes and Byrnes are buried,

He stretched his bones and fell in a dream

Of sun and moon that a good hour

Bellowed and pranced in the round tower;

Of golden king and Silver lady,

Bellowing up and bellowing round,

Till toes mastered a sweet measure,

Mouth mastered a sweet sound,

Prancing round and prancing up

Until they pranced upon the top.

That golden king and that wild lady

Sang till stars began to fade,

Hands gripped in hands, toes close together,

Hair spread on the wind they made;

That lady and that golden king

Could like a brace of blackbirds sing.

'It's certain that my luck is broken,'

That rambling jailbird Billy said;

'Before nightfall I'll pick a pocket

And snug it in a feather bed.

I cannot find the peace of home

On great-grandfather's battered tomb.'
