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

26. Aedh hears the Cry of the Sedge


I WANDER by the edge 
Of this desolate lake 
Where wind cries in the sedge 
Until the axle break 
That keeps the stars in their round         5
And hands hurl in the deep 
The banners of East and West 
And the girdle of light is unbound, 
Your breast will not lie by the breast 
Of your beloved in sleep.  10
