Yeats's profession of love for nature is one of his most famous and beautiful poems. Yeats expresses his desire to build a small cabin at Innisfree, out of natural materials, and live alone. He will find peace on the lake, where it drops from the morning, and the beautiful midnight. He determines to leave immediately, because even when he stands in a road or on a city pavement, he hears the lapping of the lake waters in his heart. Like the writings of Thoreau, Yeats romanticizes the elements of nature connecting with his soul.
