This week is Read Across America Week and the focus this year is poetry. I think it would be fun for us to gather some favorite poems or favorite quotes from really long poems.
I won't pressure anyone by calling for your one, most favorite bit of poetry. I can never choose just one of any kind of favorite thing. So relax and just share one or some of a favorite poem of yours.
I have so many beloveds, but this is one of them from William Butler Yeats, called "He 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.
Enjoy some poetry this week...share a bit here!
