In this poem, the poet expresses his desire to go to Innisfree. He starts imagining his life there. He thinks about building a small cabin (i.e. a hut made up of clay and branches) there.
Next he talks about the view of that place which he tries to capture in the words. According to him, there will be beans of green colour (visual imagery) and a hive for honey bees which will be buzzing (auditory imagery).
The veils (darkness) will vanish away after the morning comes. The cricket will be singing (auditory imagery). The midnight will be shining with the dim light of stars and noon will be glowing with purple colour. The sound of lake water lapping by the shore will sooth his ears.
In every line, the poet captures the sound as well as sight of Innisfree and tells the readers that nature is the real healer of soul.
