Poem to mark St. Patrick's Day & Yeats2015

Today is St. Patrick's Day and tomorrow, as part of the 'I Will Arise And Go Now Festival' in Gort, I will be MCing the special Yeats2015 Over The Edge: Open Reading at Gort Library.

To mark the occasion I am publishing my re-write, penned back in the year 2000, of Yeats' poem 'When You Are Old'. 

Yeats' original can be read here; my re-write is here.
