all complexities of mire or blood

Byzantium:

The unpurged images of day recede; 
The Emperor's drunken soldiery are abed; 
Night resonance recedes, night-walkers' song 
After great cathedral gong; 
A starlit or a moonlit dome disdains 
All that man is, 
All mere complexities, 
The fury and the mire of human veins. 

William Butler Yeats.
