] Following is my all-time favorite Yeats poem. It's the second stanza that gets me every time:
] When You Are Old
] How many loved your moments of glad grace,
] And loved your beauty with love false or true,
] But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you,
] And loved the sorrows of your changing face;
It's so strange that you should mention this poem--it's long been my favorite too. I was sifting through some old books Sunday night and came upon it...and fell in love all over again. So lovely it hurts...
