Tread softly

My poem for today is by William Butler Yeats(1865-1939). I have chosen it because it really is short but sweet and so you can quickly read it , but it is guaranteed to linger long after you have read it , because it is beautiful.

He wishes for the cloths of Heaven

Had I the heavens' embroideres 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.

We are all so easily hurt and sadly can easily hurt others unintentionally. So let 's all tread softly .

  1. Really like this poem, I think that the first time I heard it was actually while watching Equilibrium, the film!
