This post is once again prompted by Emma at Crazy With Twins, here.
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 (1865 – 1939)
Written over a century ago, long before the advent of computers as we now have them, these lines strike me as good advice to us all as we read the contributions of others in the blogging scene; let us remember that each post, especially a creative or autobiographical one, is that author’s offering, and our appraisal and criticism should always be tender!
