Romantic Visionary By W.B. Yeats This book is a collection Of Yeats Poetry from 1889 to 1939. His poems got better as he wrote toward the end of his life. Some of his poems reflected a love not returned. My favorite in this collection is the" Winding Star ". A book of poems you can pick up 6 months later and just reflect on your favorite ones. I had this book in my library.
