W.B. Yeats (1865–1939).  The Wind Among the Reeds.  1899.

20. To my Heart, bidding it have no Fear


BE you still, be you still, trembling heart; 
Remember the wisdom out of the old days: 
Him who trembles before the flame and the flood, 
And the winds that blow through the starry ways, 
Let the starry winds and the flame and the flood         5
Cover over and hide, for he has no part 
With the proud, majestical multitude.
