The Lake Isle Of Innisfree - Quiz

Read the poem and answer all the questions below
I will arise and go now, and go to Innnisfree,
And a small cabin built 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 and quiet there, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping form the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
There midnight’s all glimmer, and noon a purple glow
And evening full of linnet’s wings.
I will rise and go now, for always night and day
I hear the water lapping with Read morelow sounds by the shore
While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavement grey,
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
William Butler Yeats
