Yeats "Lake Isle of Innisfree"

In changing "bee-loud" into "wing-loud", I referred to this poem in
"Tinker on Lucas Creek" #4


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 honeybee,
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 evenings 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.

The "Lake Isle of Innisfree" is a poem written by William Butler Yeats about an island in Lough Gill. It was contained in a collection of his poetry titled The Countess Kathleen and Various Legends and Lyrics published in 1893.  ---From Wikipedia---
