HEAVEN'S EMBROIDERED CLOTHS, oil on linen,  120 x 80 cms

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.

Aedh wishes for the cloths of heaven, by W B Yeats


This painting is part of a series inspired by the romantic poetry of WB Yeats. In each case the scene is entirely imaginary, my own response to reading the poem. Others paintings in the series include 'Penny, Brown Penny', 'Cap and Bells', and 'Silver Trout'.
