THAT crazed girl improvising her music.Her poetry, dancing upon the shore,Her soul in division from itselfClimbing, falling She knew not where,Hiding amid the cargo of a steamship,Her knee-cap broken, that girl I declareA beautiful lofty thing, or a thingHeroically lost, heroically found.No matter what disaster occurredShe stood in desperate music wound,Wound, wound, and she made in her triumphWhere the bales and the baskets layNo common intelligible soundBut sang, ‘O sea-starved, hungry sea.’

Artemis: Margot Ruddock. :(
From wiki: “Marguerite (Margot) Ruddock (1907-1951), who used the stage name Margot Collis, was an actress, poet and singer. She had a relationship with W. B. Yeats starting in 1934. Their correspondence was published as Ah, Sweet Dancer (1970).
Yeats edited her poems for publication, but it is not clear how much change he made to them. He included some of them in the Oxford Book of Modern Verse, which he edited.
Some of her poems have been set as songs by the composer Robert Erickson.
She was married twice: first to John Collis, with whom she had a son, Michael, and secondly to Raymond Lovell, with whom she had a daughter, Simone Lovell. She died in 1951, when she was just 44.
During her marriage to Raymond Lovell she had an affair with Yeats. She loved him dearly while he was merely getting one over on Maude, his true love, by being promiscious at an older age; something that he hadn’t done when he was a younger man. The affair broke down and Margot Ruddock became mentally unstable, something that Yeats links to in his poem “A Crazed Girl”. (via: wiki)

THAT crazed girl improvising her music.
Her poetry, dancing upon the shore,

Her soul in division from itself
Climbing, falling She knew not where,
Hiding amid the cargo of a steamship,
Her knee-cap broken, that girl I declare
A beautiful lofty thing, or a thing
Heroically lost, heroically found.

No matter what disaster occurred
She stood in desperate music wound,
Wound, wound, and she made in her triumph
Where the bales and the baskets lay
No common intelligible sound
But sang, ‘O sea-starved, hungry sea.’

The girl goes dancing thereOn the leaf-sown, new-mown, smoothGrass plot of the garden;Escaped from bitter youth,Escaped out of her crowd,Or out of her black cloud.Ah, dancer, ah, sweet dancer!
If strange men come from the houseTo lead her away, do not sayThat she is happy being crazy;Lead them gently astray;Let her finish her dance,Let her finish her dance.Ah, dancer, ah, sweet dancer!

The girl goes dancing there
On the leaf-sown, new-mown, smooth
Grass plot of the garden;
Escaped from bitter youth,
Escaped out of her crowd,
Or out of her black cloud.
Ah, dancer, ah, sweet dancer!

If strange men come from the house
To lead her away, do not say
That she is happy being crazy;
Lead them gently astray;
Let her finish her dance,
Let her finish her dance.
Ah, dancer, ah, sweet dancer!

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.

I remember a dawn when my heart
got tied in a lock of your hair.

My soul heard something from your soul
my heart drank from your spring
I drowned and the flood swept me..!
