„The lover becomes the thing he loves
By virtue of much imagining;
Since what I long for is already in me,
The act of longing should be enough.“

Lyric poetry, Não pode tirar-me as esperanças, Transforma-se o amador na cousa amada

Original

Transforma-se o amador na coisa amada Por virtude de muito imaginar, Não tenho, logo, mais que desejar, Pois em mim tenho a parte desejada.

Variante: Transforma-se o amador na cousa amada,
Por virtude do muito imaginar;
Não tenho, logo, mais que desejar,
Pois em mim tenho a parte desejada.

„Why should the imagination of a man
Long past his prime remember things that are
Emblematical of love and war?“

—  W.B. Yeats, buch The Winding Stair and Other Poems

I, st. 3
The Winding Stair and Other Poems (1933), A Dialogue of Self and Soul http://poetry.poetryx.com/poems/1397/
Kontext: My Soul. Why should the imagination of a man
Long past his prime remember things that are
Emblematical of love and war?
Think of ancestral night that can,
If but imagination scorn the earth
And intellect is wandering
To this and that and t'other thing,
Deliver from the crime of death and birth.
