Or spozin I wrote out a paraphrase before I wrote the poem. I wouldn't do this of course, but I supposing I did versify some more abstract content I had arrived at before the fact. That would be interesting precisely because it is so foreign to the way we think about poetry nowadays. There would be two texts, in a certain relationship to each other. It would be rash to conclude that the first text was the "intentional meaning" of the second.

This was Yeats' standard procedure. Some of his prose sketches - they are like miniature plot summaries - have been published.
