W. B. Yeats Bed-ridden, voice cracked with age and slurred with arterial
deterioration, only a year or two from the end, Maggie remembered the
nightingale she had heard fifty years before: "The last time I heard the nightingale
was at Woolley Grange, outside of Maidenhead, the other side of Maidenhead . . .

Prince' where God rewarded both Prince and Swallow for their sacrifices with a
