He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven by William Butler Yeats

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.”

                                                   William Butler Yeats

    Niall thank you for sharing such a lovely poem. It says alot and it means alot to me. A mans happiness is a woman who is there for them in every way they can. A woman who will love them coz of who they are and not for a material .things that everybody can buy.
