The inscription reads:
Cast a cold EyeVery simple, but who is this horseman guy? Is it one of the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse? Or is it just an imagined traveler - like me - who stops to look at his grave?
On Life, on Death.
Horseman, pass by.
There's a theory, by the way, that Yeats may not be buried there at all.
First he was buried in France, but then
years later they dug him up again
to bury him in Irish ground.
Did they retrieve the proper bones?
Or is it someone else, unknown,
sleeping beneath his mound?
