Hazy Reflections and a Taste of W.B. Yeats




'I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.'

From 'The Lake of Innisfree' by W.B. Yeats

I've always wondered how people live next to water and hear the sound of the water lapping by the shore.

Thank you, Olga and Linda! Lapping water is very soporific, so one may well doze off!!
