Et uddrag af Yeats kendte digt er skrevet ind i billedet. Digtet af Yeats handler om myter og magi. Og kredser om det universelle tema: Søgen efter kærlighed. 

Aengus vandrer ud i skoven for at finde ro fra ilden, som brænder i hans hoved. Måske passionen og kærligheden. 

Han laver en magisk fiskestang af en hasselgren, og fanger en ørred af sølv, som forvandler sig til en smuk kvinde. Men så snart Aengus vender sig mod hende, forsvinder hun. I sidste vers er Aengus blevet en gammel mand, som stadig leder efter hende, og aldrig mister håbet om at møde hende igen. 

The Song of Wandering Aengus, by Willam Butler Yeats (1865-1939) 

I went out to the hazel wood,  
Because a fire was in my head,  
And cut and peeled a hazel wand,  
And hooked a berry to a thread;  
And when white moths were on the wing,
And moth-like stars were flickering out,  
I dropped the berry in a stream  
And caught a little silver trout.  

When I had laid it on the floor  
I went to blow the fire a-flame,
But something rustled on the floor,  
And someone called me by my name:  
It had become a glimmering girl  
With apple blossom in her hair  
Who called me by my name and ran
And faded through the brightening air.

Though I am old with wandering
Through hollow lands and hilly lands,
I will find out where she has gone, 
and kiss her lips and take her hands; 
And walk among long dappled grass, 
And pluck till time and times are gone, 
The silver apples of the moon, 
The golden apples of the sun.
