He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven by William Butler Yeats

Wlliam Butler YeatsHe Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven


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