Ireland Day 8

Saturday, April 27, 2013
Traveling is on the agenda today- we mostly will be getting ourselves to Derry in northern Ireland.



The walls encircling the city date back to 1613 A.D. Along the way is a planned stop at Yeats grave and a look at the Bluestack Mountains and Donegal Bay.

The Lake Isle of Inisfree by W.B. Yeats:

I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree, 
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made; 
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honeybee, 
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a-glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.
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 gray,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.
1892
