To Paradise

A film poem celebrating some of Nobel Poet WB Yeats’ most beautiful poems and their links with Sligo – his spiritual home.

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.

from The Stolen Child
