The Innocent and beautiful have no enemy but time!

Born on 13th June 1865, W.B. Yeats quoted once, "The innocent and the beautiful, Have no enemy but time" - And rhymed in A Song, "Oh, who could have foretold that the heart grows old?" and another rhyme in Responsibilities, "In dreams begin Responsibility" - Meaningful rhymed verses! He believed in the supernatural and the All Soul's day calling of Ancestors, Yeats writes of the souls taking rebirths as animals, etc. It was William Butler Yeats who got the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923. And it the famous Abbey Theatre formerly, the Irish Literary Theatre which was founded partly to support Irish nationalism by encouraging the writing and production of plays about Irish life. The theatre performed most of Yeat's 26 plays, and he served until his death as one of the directors who managed the institution.
