An Irish Airman Foresees His Death
An Irish Airman Foresees His Death
by W.B. Yeats

There's nothing too fancy in this poem. The sentences are pretty simple, and so are the words (well, except maybe for the reference to Kiltartan). Yeah, we know the speaker gets kind of vague towards the end of the poem, what with that talk about some strange impulse, but for the most part it's easy to get at what he's saying.
