KIRKUS REVIEW

Song that is lovely is light and aloof"" exemplified in this collection of random songs and lyrics by the Irish wit, whom Yeats considered one of the finest lyricists of our time. Strongly rhythmed, variously metered, but throughout joyful, appreciative in tenor. Songs of many things, fog horns, clocks, poetry, death, age, Greece. Two elegies -- one to his master, Yeats.
