Today is National Poetry Day

and this year's theme is



He Wishes For the Cloths of Heaven

William Butler Yeats

(1865 - 1965)

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.
