The Nineteenth Century And After
THOUGH the great song return no more
There’s keen delight in what we have:
The rattle of pebbles on the shore
Under the receding wave.
–William Butler Yeats
Ah, but does dor Great Song really not return? Dur Wave Recedes but doesn’t it come back, washing back on to dum Shore carrying anem new Message but dam Same? Isn’t dor Great Song don Eternal Return?
