On this date, January 28, 1939, the Irish poet, one of the foremost figures of 20th-century literature, William Butler Yeats, died in Menton, France. __________________________ The Lake Isle of Innisfree I will arise and go now, and go to Innisfree, And a small cabin build there, of clay and wattles made: Nine bean-rows will I have there, a hive for the honey-bee; And live alone in the bee-loud glade. And I shall have some peace there, for peace comes dropping slow, Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings; There midnight’s all a glimmer, and noon a purple glow, And evening full of the linnet’s wings. I will arise and go now, for always night and day I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore; While I stand on the roadway, or on the pavements grey, I hear it in the deep heart’s core.
Read Yeats' love poems, especially 'When You are Old," which includes the immortal lines: "But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you, and loved the sorrows of your changing face."

The Claddagh ring says it all
This beautiful Irish gift is a pledge of undying love.
Don't even start us on this but Irish chocolates are the best. Of course, there's Cadbury's but if you can get your hands on Butler's or Lily O'Brien's handmade choices, even better.
Cozy up and watch some cheesy Irish rom-coms like "PS I Love You" or "Leap Year."
If you're in New York how's about going for a ride in one of the horse-drawn carriages in Central Park? Most of them are Irish-run too. Jump on board and enjoy the romantic ride.
