“Tread softly because you tread on my dreams,”

He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

yeats_boughton-6580425Had 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.
