beautiful stuff considered on the first day

Beautiful things considered, first day of self-imposed challenge

  1. Number one: a friendship coming out the other side of a “hang-up” as communicative and warm and inspiring as it ever was before.   Magic revealing itself in a human connection – whether it’s the first or thousandth time, never gets tired, does it?
  2. A previously hung-up-on friend sharing one of your favourite poems with you.
  3. One of your favourite poems read aloud.

 

 

 

Aedh 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.

~William Butler Yeats, 1899
