Not a secret, and fortunately there are still many as me, I’m a literature, book loving person and read whenever I can. There is one short poem in particular I love, and with time it became me and my wife’s (Catherine) common poetry:
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
I believe it’s obvious why. Not just because of a 2002 Christian Bale movie Equilibrium, where Sean Bean (LOTR) told this work beautifully (and fitting greatly in that scene), but perhaps it talks to all who might be in love and devotion knowing no bounds?!
And if we are at good reads, I could recommend a few titles, these are from modern literature, sci-fi, thriller:
