The Lake Isle Of Innisfree

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 low sounds by the shore While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavement grey, I hear it in the deep heart’s core
