japonisme: Aedh wishes for the Cloths of Heaven

Aedh wishes for the 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.

W.B. Yeats The Wind Among the Reeds. 1899

I like the atmosphere of all these pictures, like a warm summer night. Where do you find all this enchanting things?

oh sabine--thank you so much. you know, i just save everything that i see that interests me and then sometimes they click together in my head, the similarities.

and of course when i don't save something, i will forget where i saw it and that's the one i need!
