This is kind of sad and I'm not sure what this is, but I like it.

Terrible Beauty: Irish Poets and the Conflict in Ireland

When you are old and grey and full of sleep~And nodding by the fire, take down this book~And slowly read, and dream of the soft look~Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep~How many loved your moments of glad grace~And loved your beauty with love false or true~But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you (sorry not enough room) ... W.B. Yeats
