Editing[edit]

I've just corrected three minor typos, and put in stanza ## in accord with ms & ts from http://www.nli.ie/yeats/main.html.

But still there are minor variations in punctuation I've noticed in versions: has someone established a critical text broadly accepted?

There is one verbal difference, one of interest, I've seen in different versions, and it is different between the ms & ts versions at http://www.nli.ie/yeats/main.html, to wit:

And a horse plashes within it
Where long-legged moor-hens dive
And hens to moor-cocks call.

[as the typescript reads]

And a horse plashes within it.
The long-legged moor-hens dive
And hens to moor-cocks call.

[as the manuscript reads]

I think I like the ms version better, but has this v.l. been discussed by editors? ABShippee (talk) 20:40, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
