Coming from an Irish Family background I love Yeats Poetry. He implores us to have Passion for life, or, for something - and, to use that Passion to lead us to a higher ground and inspire others - not too waste our Passion on foolishness. Passion takes us from the mundane and can bring light into the lives of others as Yeats has done for so many. We can use it wisely or we can abuse a force and energy that can do great things in and with our life. I think in many ways Yeats is lamenting that he did not recognize this earlier in his life. As Passion was his love.
Your own Passion for poetry Monsignor is a testament to how your passion has brought a great deal of joy and pleasure into my reading of the poetry you present regularly and no doubt many others. Please keep the poetry flowing.
Thank you Monsignor for sharing that passion.
