Review of The Moods by W. B. Yeats

The Moods by W. B. Yeats (b. 1865) was offered by Poets.org's Poem-A-Day on February 17, 2013.  Poets.org provides an excellent note that explains the poem's meaning; however, I confess that I did not see in the poem the meaning as described.  I saw only death, aging, decay, and a mourning for the loss of one's youthful vigor.  A mood was created for me, and the word "mood" appears in the title and later in the body of the poem, but I did not see how the poem was about moods per se.
