Today’s poem is an old favorite of mine for many years now. And written by one of my favorite poets William Butler Yeats. It is also the inspiration behind my epic fantasy WIP Harbingers of El Tinor.

  1. This is a poet I am quite familiar with and I really liked listening to these readings. Hoping that your NaPo is going well as well! I wrote a poem yesterday and it left me incredibly satisfied. 🙂
