William Butler Yeats

Here you will find the Poem A Coat of poet William Butler Yeats

A Coat

I MADE my song a coat
Covered with embroideries
Out of old mythologies
From heel to throat;
But he fools caught it,
Wore it in the world's eyes
As though they'd wrought it.
Song, let them take it,
For there's more enterprise
In walking naked.
Notorious, till all my priceless things
Are but a post the passing dogs defile.
