I visited Ireland and saw Yeats' grave. So I'm going to try posting a few of my photos. Outside the churchyard there is a new sculpture based on "He wishes for the cloths of Heaven" It's a life size bronze figure on a quilt.
HAD I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

Let me know if that has worked and I'll post the others.
yeah, works just swimmingly !
though I did think at first glance that he was "popping a squat"
Here's the Wikipedia article on Sitting, which has some related pictures:
Nice photos...I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of them. Thanks for posting them.
