Imitated From The Japanese

Imitated From The Japanese

A most astonishing thing
Seventy years have I lived;

(Hurrah for the flowers of Spring,
For Spring is here again.)

Seventy years have I lived
No ragged beggar-man,
Seventy years have I lived,
Seventy years man and boy,
And never have I danced for joy.



Poem Imitated From The Japanese - William Butler Yeats
