I think life, would suddenly seem wonderful to us
If we were threatened to die.
Just think of how many projects, travels, love affairs, studies
IT - our life - hides from us
Made us invisible by our laziness, which certain of a future
Delays them incessantly.
Naslov He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven - W. B. Yeats Autor Aleksandar Stojaković O pesmi
He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven je poema William Butler Yeats. Objavljena je 1899 u njegovo trećoj zbirci pesama, The Wind Among the Reeds.
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.
William Butler Yeats
