Brilliant! The imagery, symbolism, wordplay, language, everything!
Rightfully regarded as one of the great poets of the 20th century. It took me a while to get in to him, and for a period there I wondered if I was going to really connect, and then it just clicked and he's now one of my favourite poets.
I highly recommend an edition with good notes though, to help expand on the Irish mythology, politics, towns/cities, people, so on so forth, etc.

W.B. Yeats
“Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.”
