Under bare Ben Bulben's head, Yeats Grave

From the Poem Under Ben Bulben WB Yeats described his simple gave and inscription in the last few lines.

 The view from Yeats grave of Benbulben.
 The Church in Drumcliff
 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.
