W.b.yeats

This is my favourite poem of all time.....written for my poet friends on e.p.

HE WISHES FOR THE CLOTHS OF HEAVEN

HAD I THE HEAVEN'S 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.P.YEATS.
