‘A Coat,’ by William Butler Yeats

‘A Coat,’ by William Butler Yeats

I made my song a coat
Covered with embroideries
Out of old mythologies
From heel to throat.
But the fools caught it
Wore it in the world’s eye
As though they’d wrought it.
Song, let them take it
For there’s more enterprise
In walking naked.
