Had I the fabric of the night,
entwined with the constellation’s stars,
the black and the purple and the grey night,
of crabs and dogs and belts of stars;
I would lay that cloth on the grass:
so as we could lay on it together;
but now we do not lay on just grass:
for now it is the universe, together.
Inspired by Yeats:
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.
