  9. It is terrific. It fills an otherwise bland and blank wall with a well-painted bit of local history and pride.

  12. Very nice indeed. I wish there were more murals in my small town, I think a piece of art like this is well worth while. I studied some of Yeats' poetry at school, and I should like to know more about him.
