    Humor-ous Description: Display a piece of classic literature with its age and character intact. A unique addition to anyone’s den, office, study, foyer, billiard room, or ballroom. Or maybe you want it in the bathroom, and hey, who are we to judge? We could go on and on trying to combine complicated adjectives to motivate you to purchase our product, in fact we wish we could. But we can’t. We're too busy doing things like trying to age paper without it disintegrating in our hands, or getting our fingers stuck in the mechanism of a 71 year-old death-trap of a typewriter. (Wall behind print not included.)

    Humor-less Description: We’ve hand typed the poem "The Stolen Child" by W.B. Yeats. (11 x 14 prints are machine printed using high-quality pigment based inks and are hand-aged.) All our prints use paper we have personally aged through our own multi-staged process. The pictures are taken without glass so you can see the detail, but be assured framed prints will ship with glass installed!

        Poem Text
        The Stolen Child

        Where dips the rocky highland
        Of Sleuth Wood in the lake,
        There lies a leafy island
        Where flapping herons wake
        The drowsy water rats;
        There we've hid our faery vats,
        Full of berrys
        And of reddest stolen cherries.
        Come away, O human child!
        To the waters and the wild
        With a faery, hand in hand,
        For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

        Where the wave of moonlight glosses
        The dim gray sands with light,
        Far off by furthest Rosses
        We foot it all the night,
        Weaving olden dances
        Mingling hands and mingling glances
        Till the moon has taken flight;
        To and fro we leap
        And chase the frothy bubbles,
        While the world is full of troubles
        And anxious in its sleep.
        Come away, O human child!
        To the waters and the wild
        With a faery, hand in hand,
        For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

        Where the wandering water gushes
        From the hills above Glen-Car,
        In pools among the rushes
        That scarce could bathe a star,
        We seek for slumbering trout
        And whispering in their ears
        Give them unquiet dreams;
        Leaning softly out
        From ferns that drop their tears
        Over the young streams.
        Come away, O human child!
        To the waters and the wild
        With a faery, hand in hand,
        For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.

        Away with us he's going,
        The solemn-eyed:
        He'll hear no more the lowing
        Of the calves on the warm hillside
        Or the kettle on the hob
        Sing peace into his breast,
        Or see the brown mice bob
        Round and round the oatmeal chest.
        For he comes, the human child,
        To the waters and the wild
        With a faery, hand in hand,
        For the world's more full of weeping than he can understand.

        W.B. Yeats
        1886
