The Winding Stair is a collection of poems by the renowned Irish poet William Butler Yeats. Yeats reflects on the passage of time, love, and the complexities of human relationships, using a winding stair as a metaphor for life’s journey. Through his lyrical and introspective verses, Yeats explores themes of nostalgia, aging, and the ever-changing nature of existence. This work is a follow-up to The Tower, first published in 1928.
