text that follows is that which is integral to Peter Warlock's song-cycle
Deeply moving and at times.....bleak.
REPROVES THE CURLEW
by William Butler Yeats
O Curlew, cry no more in the air,
Or only to the water in the West;
Because your crying brings to my mind
passion-dimmed eyes and long heavy hair
That was shaken out over my breast:
There is enough evil in the crying of wind.
