She hears me strike the board and say

That she is under ban

Of all good men and women,

Being mentioned with a man

That has the worst of all bad names;

And thereupon replies

That his hair is beautiful,

Cold as the March wind his eyes.

Thanks a lot! Japanese manga eyes are indeed indcreibly soulful. In fact it was probably Yeats' line about the woman's eyes with their shadows deep that gave me the idea of adapting this poem in this particular style.

Mercy, Kate! Yeats is my favorite poet (if you don't count Homer), but I was not aware of this poem. Thank you so much for quiotng it! It seems to me that Yeats was of two minds on the topic. The first, captured in Sailing to Byzantium : Caught in that sensual music all neglect/Monuments of unageing intellect . Once out of nature I shall never take/My bodily form from any natural thing,/But such a form as Grecian goldsmiths make/Of hammered gold and gold enamelling When I read this poem, gorgeous as it is, I think oh no, oh no, how sterile to desire to be a mechanical device simply because it never dies. I know that I'll be caught in that sensual music 'til I die. But when he was older, Yeats wrote another of my favorite poems, Crazy Jane and Jack the Journeyman, where he says I love's skein upon the ground,/My body in the tomb /Shall leap into the light lost/In my mother's womb. Perhaps by then he was at peace with death, with growing older and then old and finally growing beyond life altogether. (And, of course, perhaps he'd also realized that by that time he'd created a body of work that would live long after he had gone on, a monument of unageing intellect. ) Thanks again for a thought-provoking post!I think Yeats was in a despairing mode when he wrote this. It is the stark, haunting quality of the poem that has remained with me. I love Sailing to Byzanthium' well, I love Yeats' poetry in general. I hadn't thought of Byzanthium' for ages, until you mentioned it. Thanks for that!! x x

Schuyler and her little pink-and-white bike are about the cuetst thing I've seen, ever. Bike riding has been one of my favorite pursuits since I was just a little older than Schuyler is now, and I still love to do it. You may be introducing her to a lifelong hobby.
