Lissadell House, Sligo (2)
Lissadell House, Sligo (2)
The south elevation.

The light of evening, Lissadell
Great windows open to the south
Two girls in silk kimonos, both
Beautiful, one a gazelle...

Many a time I think to seek
One or the other out and speak
Of that old Georgian mansion, mix
pictures of the mind, recall
That table and the talk of youth,
Two girls in silk kimonos, both
Beautiful, one a gazelle.

W. B. Yeats

A tribute by Yeats (a frequent visitor to Lissadell House) to the Gore Booth sisters Constance and Eva, and their home at Lissadell.
