Review of The Balloon of the Mind by W. B. Yeats
The Balloon of the Mind by the 1923 Nobel Prize winner W. B. Yeats (b. 1865) was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on January 5, 2013. It is an imperfectly rhyming poem of only 22 words arranged in 4 lines. The poem speaks to how the hands compress the ballooning thoughts of the poet into a poem. Given the poet in this case, that's a whole lot of compression.
