He Wishes For Cloths of Heaven
He Wishes For Cloths of Heaven

By W B Yeats

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

I wouldn't know of this poem if it weren't for duranorak. I think it's beautiful, and magical, and other wonderous things that can't be articulated. I can see it, when I read it.

I don't actually like this poem. We discussed it in class for GCSE English and like usual I mostly sat there and said 'yes... and?' - and yet I can recite the first ten lines, and snippets of it often get stuck going round and round my head. Particularly these lines:

Porphyria's LoverCollapse )
That moment she was mine, mine, fair,
 Perfectly pure and good: I found
A thing to do, and all her hair
In one long yellow string I wound
Three times her little throat around,
And strangled her. ...Collapse )

Current Mood: pensive
