A Month (or two) for Baldr – XXII – A Quote

A quote, poem, or piece of writing that you think this deity resonates strongly with.”

This one clicked itself as I was perusing Yeat’s poems again.

`Three dear things that women know,’
Sang a bone upon the shore;
`A man if I but held him so
When my body was alive
Found all the pleasure that life gave’:
A bone wave-whitened and dried in the wind.

-“Three Things” W. B. Yeats
