Of night and light and the half-light

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.

PS:  Both photographs taken in Munnar at the Sengulam Reservoir during Sunset. In the first one, my friend was taking the reflection of a sunset and I decided to photo bomb 😉
