Come and dream of kings and kingdoms,

Cooking chestnuts on the bars –

Round us the white roads are endless,

Mournful under mournful stars.

 

Whisper lest we too may sadden,

Round us herds of shadows steal –

Care not if beyond the shadows

Flieth Fortune’s furious wheel.

 

Kingdoms rising, kingdoms falling,

Bowing nations, plumèd wars –

Weigh them in an hour of dreaming,

Cooking chestnuts on the bars.

 

-W.B. Yeats
