Yeats, for no reason

It would have been convenient if today was his birthday, but W.B. was born in June and I only saw this quote recently:

I carry Yeats with me wherever I go. He's my constant companion. I always can find some comfort in Yeats no matter what the situation is. Months and months and months go by and I know I need to switch to Shelley or somebody else, but right now Yeats is enough for me.
~Linda Hamilton

A Favorite Poem Project video (Dude made me teary. If you know me, though, you know that happens a lot):

A bonus song about Yeats:

Fitting tribute to a great poet. Especially enjoyed Lisa Lambe's singing and the accompanying video.
