Recitation of Poem - The Lake Isle of Innisfree - W B Yeats

This is another poem which I liked. I am adding this to the shortlist for my 5th standard English Poem recitation. The Lake Isle of Innisfree - William Butler Yeats.

You can access the audio of the poem recitation by the poet from the following link. The Lake Isle of Innisfree recitation by W B Yeats

The Lake Isle of Innisfree
Written by William Butler Yeats

I WILL arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,
And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;
Nine bean rows will I have there, a hive for the honey bee,
And live alone in the bee-loud glade.

And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight's all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,
And evening full of the linnet's wings.

I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements gray,
I hear it in the deep heart's core.
