From the Poem Under Ben Bulben WB Yeats described his simple gave and inscription in the last few lines.
A sculpture dedicated to one of the often quoted Yeats poems "He wishes for the Clothes 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.
