Tread softly

28Oct10

He wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread upon my dreams.

William Butler Yeats

      I hadn’t heard or thought about that poem or those words for years…read it again this morning and just wanted to *put* it somewhere.
