He wishes for Cloths of Heaven

The above picture was taken with my iPad at the park today, just as the sun went in. The beauty of the sun peering through the clouds reminds me of the Yeats poem ‘He wishes for 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
