A Month With Yeats. Day 8

 This part of Jane Dougherty Writes A Month With Yeats. 

Rules and Pingback Here
The blood  dimmed – Tide is loosed and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned.

               The time has gone.

 Throw open the gates,let in the water.

Pay no heed to the colour there is no return.

Let it all in,the red tide

The conflagration started we shall all burn.

Dash down the borders, useless. No place to hide.

We shall all drown, all is lost.

We took our eyes off the ball

The wars never stop, we pay such a cost.

Throw open the gates, break down the walls.

    There is such a contrast between the frantic call in your poem and the photo of the placid dog in the header. We have really lost it, haven’t we?

    “Throw open the gates, break down the walls.” – let’s hope so.
