Poetry, Sunshine and British Summer Time

1   As I came into the kitchen this morning I heard, on BBC Radio 4, one of my favourite lines of poetry –                ” Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.”  The whole beautiful poem follows:

“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.”   W. B. Yeats

2   A fabulous singing session this evening with Claire Ingleheart, the last before she goes off to London to work with Wildworks as M.D. on their new production, ‘Babel’. We ended with ‘You are my sunshine’ which seemed kind of appropriate.

The Ingleheart Singers.
