Her poetry, dancing upon the shore,

Her soul in department from itself
Climbing, falling She knew no longer the place,
Hiding amid the shipment of a steamship,
Her knee-cap damaged, that woman I claim
A appealing lofty factor, or something
Heroically misplaced, heroically chanced on.

No subject what catastrophe happened
She stood in determined song wound,
Wound, wound, and he or she made in her triumph
Where the bales and the hampers lay
No universal intelligible sound
But sang, 'O sea-starved, hungry sea.'

W. B. Yeats
