Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

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.

Aedh Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven
by William Butler Yeats
(published in 1899 in his third volume of poetry,The Wind Among the Reeds)

Friday was for my Family
Saturday was for my Community
Sunday was for my Spirit


Now, I am sewing.
So...Monday is for Making!
