Yeats is superb at picturial poetry----painting a picture with words.His art  is nowhere greater than in the poem"When You Are Old".
  At the beginning of the poem an image of old lady emerges on the paper who is nodding by the fire with soft lool and deep shadow.This shows me a romantic picture."When you are old",althougt you will walk your own earth and move through your own time,the same sun will rise on you that once has once risen on you,and the same seasons will course across your life as ever has moved across yours.Getting older means that you can read the growing-up just like a book."When you are old and gray and full of sleep",you may never lack of romance in your mind to read your mind.Sometimes becoming old for you is a time that you are looking forward to feeling more warm and love.Sometimes it might be a time that you want to dance , sing and hug every person even stranger you meet.So,I can see clear how the poetic romance flows from Yeat's several lines.
Then he demonstrates what is true love."When you are young,some people love your glad grace while some love your beauty",but only one man loves"the pilgrim soul in you" and "the sorrows of your changing face".With time passing by,true love never changes.True love is for man what water is for fish.
  At last Yeats does not fail to express his regret for love.Throwing your mind back to the past,the lover in your young age is always the first person that you come to with every tear and every laughter.When time has gone,you are likely to "bend down beside the glowing bars" and murmur how love fled.That day,that person has"paced upon the mountains overhead" as he"hid his face amid a crowd of stars",you will understand all his feelings that he has hided.Yesterday is over,regret turns out to be a new taste of love.No one can take love away and no one gains it without pain.This is forever love.When you are old,love never disperses like mist and smoke because some regrets remain.
  Endless romance flows from Yeats'several lines to show what's love and how to love.
