Byzantium

 *********

Before me floats an image, man or shade,
Shade more than man, more image than a shade;
*******
I hail the superhuman;
I call it death-in-life and life-in-death.
*******

At midnight on the Emperor's pavement flit
Flames that no faggot feeds, nor steel has lit,

Nor storm disturbs, flames begotten of flame,
Where blood-begotten spirits come
And all complexities of fury leave,
Dying into a dance,
An agony of trance,
An agony of flame that cannot singe a sleeve.
 

 

William Butler Yeats
