He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven - Poem by William Butler 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.

    Yeats has brought out the contrasting images here. The rich-poor divide.
    The poem opens with the haughty richness indicated by the Cloths of Heaven” embroidered in gold and silver light. But then it turns out that it is just a dream. The poor has only dreams to spread before the world. So, ” tread softly” is the message to the rich, because, it is on the dreams of the poor that you, the rich, tread.... Very poignant write.

    Ha! Lovely poem. The poems is on “his” desire for the cloths of heaven... The reader is taken on a fantastic ride in the gay abandon of the heavens. But, abruptly, he is rudely dropped back to earth:

    But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
    I have spread my dreams under your feet;
    Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. “” The reader misses a heartbeat or two...

    The poem ends with a prayer not to tread hard on the dreams. The contrasting dreams and the poverty are left to the God to decide upon as to which one is to prevail. (Report) Reply

    I believed that I had heard of a slightly different quote: ...but I, being poor, have only my dreams. I spread my dreams beneath your feet, tread softly, lest you tread on my dreams. Do you have any info on this version? (Report) Reply

Heaven Poems

  1. Maker Of Heaven And Earth (All Things Bright And Beautiful)

    All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small, All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all. Each little flower that opens, Each little bird that sings, He made their glowing colours, He made their tiny wings. The rich man in his castle, The poor man at his gate, God made them, high or lowly, And ordered their estate. The purple-headed mountain, The river running by, The sunset, and the morning, That brightens up the sky; The cold wind in the winter, The pleasant summer sun, The ripe fruits in the garden, He made them every one. The tall trees in the greenwood, The meadows where we play, The rushes by the water, We gather every day;-- He gave us eyes to see them, And lips that we might tell, How great is God Almighty, Who has made all things well.

  2. Heaven-Haven

    I have desired to go Where springs not fail, To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail, And a few lilies blow. And I have asked to be Where no storms come, Where the green swell is in the havens dumb, And out of the swing of the sea.

  3. "Heaven"—Is What I Cannot Reach!

    239 "Heaven"—is what I cannot reach! The Apple on the Tree— Provided it do hopeless—hang— That—"Heaven" is—to Me! The Color, on the Cruising Cloud— The interdicted Land— Behind the Hill—the House behind— There—Paradise—is found! Her teasing Purples—Afternoons— The credulous—decoy— Enamored—of the Conjuror— That spurned us—Yesterday!

  4. "Heaven" Has Different Signs&Mdash;To Me

    575 "Heaven" has different Signs—to me— Sometimes, I think that Noon Is but a symbol of the Place— And when again, at Dawn, A mighty look runs round the World And settles in the Hills— An Awe if it should be like that Upon the Ignorance steals— The Orchard, when the Sun is on— The Triumph of the Birds When they together Victory make— Some Carnivals of Clouds— The Rapture of a finished Day— Returning to the West— All these—remind us of the place That Men call "paradise"— Itself be fairer—we suppose— But how Ourself, shall be Adorned, for a Superior Grace— Not yet, our eyes can see—
