Poem Title:  Solomon To Sheba

Poem Category:  General Poems

Poet:  William Butler Yeats

Poet Biography: 
William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was a poet whose influences include The Occult, symbolism and Irish political independance

Sang Solomon to sheba,
and kissed her dusky face,
"all day long from mid-day
we have talked in the one place,
all day long from shadowless noon
we have gone round and round
in the narrow theme of love
like a old horse in a pound.-
To Solomon sang Sheba,
plated on his knees,
"if you had broached a matter
that might the learned please,
you had before the sun had thrown
our shadows on the ground
discovered that my thoughts, not it,
are but a narrow pound.'
Said Solomon to Sheba,
and kissed her Arab eyes,
"there's not a man or woman
born under the skies
dare match in learning with us two,
and all day long we have found
there's not a thing but love can make
the world a narrow pound.'
