He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven William Butler Yeats (1865-1939).
Irish poet and playwright, senator, mystic and Nobel Laureate. Here is my favorite Yeats poem paired with this post from Earth .
Had I the heaven’s 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.
Here’s wishing you an amazing 2012, Rajini Rao
Thanks, Marc Ponomareff ! Happy 2012 to you too.
The Milky Way films are always astounding. However, I always have to mute whatever soundtrack has been deemed appropriate and why does the source camera move with obscuring buildings in the way. Distracting but still lovely.
Happy New Year Rajini!! May the Sun shine brightly for you 🙂
