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 on my dreams!

W B Yeats
