Arthur Quiller-Couch, ed. 1919. The Oxford Book of English Verse: 1250–1900.
William Butler Yeats. b. 1865
862. Where My Books go
ALL the words that I utter, 
  And all the words that I write, 
Must spread out their wings untiring, 
  And never rest in their flight, 
Till they come where your sad, sad heart is,         5
  And sing to you in the night, 
Beyond where the waters are moving, 
  Storm-darken'd or starry bright.
