Rushing Waters of the Klamath River
The Old Men Admiring Themselves In The Water - Poem by William Butler Yeats
I HEARD the old, old men say,
And one by one we drop away.'
They had hands like claws, and their knees
Were twisted like the old thorn-trees
By the waters.
I heard the old, old men say,
'All that's beautiful drifts away
Like the waters.'
