W.B. Yeats (1865–1939).  The Wind Among the Reeds.  1899.

36. Aedh 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:         5
But I, being poor, have only my dreams; 
I have spread my dreams under your feet; 
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
