Tread Softly

wwucalla

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.
~W.B. Yeats

 

My dreams are petals soft as silk
under your feet,
tender enough to bruise,
but oh there are so many more
where those came from.

  1. Beautiful, thoughtful, Emily. Ditto for me. Except, in my case, time is running out for those dreams to become a reality.
