One of my absolute favourite poems is by William Butler Yates, He Wishes For the Cloths of Heaven, and the complete poem is at the bottom of this post.
Each time I read it, it is the last two lines that make me pause and think, and so these words are the wisdom this week :-
“I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.”
This text is longer than usual and so you may prefer to shorten it to :-
“Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.”
I hope you feel inspired 🙂
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.
