  • Yeats and Sligo

In his poetry, he shows us how deep an impression Sligo made on his imagination.

In 'The Lake Isle of Innisfree', he says:

"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 honey-bee,

And live alone in a bee-loud glade."
