I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree,And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made;Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the

honey-bee,And live alone in the bee-loud glade.
And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow,Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow,And evening full of the linnet’s wings.
I will arise and go now, for always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey,I hear it in the deep heart’s core.

1.       Sounds of the bees, crickets, lake water lapping by the shore, sound of the birds’ wings are described in the poem. ‘…And full of linnet’s wings’ is the best description as is describes the sounds of birds’ wings when flocked in the air.
2.       The poet does not want the company of the other people. It is evident from the fact that he mentioned to live alone at Innisfree.
3.       By “pavements grey” he meant surrounded by people and the noise thereof.
4.       By ‘glimmer’ the poet meant the light of the stars in the sky.
5.       In the evening the birds fly back home. In the process, the sky is covered by the wings of the birds.
