He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven

An Occassional series of poems

I do not claim any literary talent or expertise but once in a while something touches the soul. I thought I would share this poem as it is so beautiful.

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.

William Butler Yeats
