Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven…. – William Butler Yeats

Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven….by William Butler Yeats

 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
