I'm terribly sorry but William Butler Yeats is 'bigging himself up' here. Whilst I love most of his poetry, poems in which he puts himself above other suitors of Maud's really wind me up. Maud had a whole plethora of 'moths circling her flame' and sadly for Yeats, he was just one of them. Maud had other fish to fry, and it was arrogant to suggest that she would have caved in and accepted one of them but for a little more pushiness!
