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;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

W.B. Yeats
The Wind Among the Reeds

The poem can be heard spoken by characters in the science fiction cult film, Equilibrium (2002)

Below is a clip of the poem partially recited by a character portrayed by Sean Bean. Spoilers . But guess what happens.
