The Song of Wandering Aengus

The poem of the month for May is a tiny taste of the work of W B Yeats.

From the expansive poetry on Irishness to the yearning of the love poems to Maud Gonne, Yeats, like all great poets, captures the enormity and the insignificance of the human condition.

The Song of Wandering Aengus was sung beautifully by The Waterboys and equally wonderfully by Christy Moore.
