Langford Reed Saved The Limerick Verse
(13 June 1865 – 28 January 1939 / County Dublin / Ireland)

Langford Reed Saved The Limerick Verse

Langford Reed saved the limerick verse,
From being taken away in a hearse.
He made it so clean
Now it's fit for a queen,
Re-established for better or worse.

I'm not clear whether the 'drooping of the eye'and the 'mantling of the blood' refers to the hare or the girl. It surely makes more sense if it refers to the latter, who again leaves him emotionally high and dry.What do others think?
I thought the poems 1-4 were as enjoyable as anything that I´ve read by WB Yeats. It´s hard to say if I like his poetic use of words or his imagery better.Wish I´d discovered his work earlier.
