    White Thorn Innocence

    They laughed at one I loved -
    The triangular hill that hung
    Under the Big Forth. They said
    That I was bounded by the whitethorn hedges
    Of the little farm and did not know the world.
    But I knew that love's doorway to life
    Is the same doorway everywhere.

    Ashamed of what I loved
    I flung her from me and called her a ditch
    Although she was smiling at me with violets.

    But now I am back in her briary arms;
    The dew of an Indian Summer morning lies
    On bleached potato-stalks -
    What age am I?

    I do not know what age I am,
    I am no mortal age;
    I know nothing of women,
    Nothing of cities,
    I cannot die
    Unless I walk outside these whitethorn hedges.

    Patrick Kavanagh
