"Book lovers never go to bed alone"
He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven
By William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)
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 love that last line in the poem...some say the most beautiful line in all of English Poetry)
