Background

A description of the experience

W B Yeats – from Selected Poetry

from Among schoolchildren

Labour is blossoming or dancing where
The body is not bruised to pleasure soul
Nor beauty born out of its own despair,
Nor blear eyed wisdom out of midnight oil.
O chestnut tree, great rooted blossomer
Are you the leaf, the blossom or the bole?
A body swayed to music, O brightening glance,
How can we know the dancer from the dance?
