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.
- 'He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven', WB Yeats

Just beautiful.

A sadly broken link, for me...

thanks for letting me know.

Firefox and Camino seemed to redirect the pic from Twitpic fine, but Chrome did not for some reason. I've uploaded a local version that should sort it all out - I figure that should still be fine copyright wise cause I've still given full attribution to the photographer and linked to the original hosting site.
