The Spur

Original Text: 

Yeats, William Butler. W. B. Yeats: Selected Poetry: 190. Ed. by A. Norman Jeffares. London: Macmillan, 1968.

1You think it horrible that lust and rage
2Should dance attention upon my old age;
3They were not such a plague when I was young;
4What else have I to spur me into song?
