The Lake isle Of Innesfree by William Butler Yeats.

The Lake isle Of Innesfree 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.
