W.B. Yeats (1865–1939).  Responsibilities and Other Poems.  1916.

31. A Coat


I MADE my song a coat 
Covered with embroideries 
Out of old mythologies 
From heel to throat; 
But the fools caught it,         5
Wore it in the world’s eyes 
As though they’d wrought it. 
Song, let them take it 
For there’s more enterprise 
In walking naked.  10
