Poetry Friday: A Drinking Song by Yeats | The 1000th Voice BlogToday I’ll actually feature an Irish poet unlike my Wednesday review. Despite being an Irish poet who wrote a drinking poem, it seems appropriate to honor Yeats as we approach Saint Patrick’s day because he was involved in the Celtic Revival, “a movement against the cultural influences of English rule in Ireland during the Victorian period, which sought to promote the spirit of Ireland’s native heritage.” (via)

Yeats’ poem is a succinct description of what many people’s weekends will be at the bar. Stay safe, have fun, and happy Saint Paddy’s day (even the fake Irish)!
