He Wishes For The Cloths Of Heaven

“He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,

Enwrought with the golden and silver light,

The blue and the dim and the dark cloths

Of night and light and half-light,

I would spread the cloths under your feet

But I, being poor, have only my dreams;

I have spread my dreams beneath your feet;

Tread softly because you tread on my dreams…

Fossem meus os tecidos bordados dos céus,

Ornamentados com luz dourada e prateada,

Os azuis e negros e pálidos tecidos

Da noite, da luz e da meia-luz,

Os estenderia sob os teus pés.

Mas eu, sendo pobre, tenho apenas os meus sonhos.

Eu estendi meus sonhos sob os teus pés

Caminha suavemente, pois caminhas sobre meus sonhos”

William Butler Yeats
