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 –

It’s been too long since I’ve read Yeats. Was reminded of this poem today in a movie. So beautiful and so true. It’s far too easy to destroy somebodies dream…

So – be critical and kind (and read more poetry)
