    Though all the East did quake to hear

    To hear of Julius Caesar’s fame,

    We dreamed that a great painter had been born
    To cold Clare rock and Galway rock and thorn,
    To that stern colour and that delicate line
    That are our secret discipline
    Wherein the gazing heart doubles her might....
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
