One Shots: Poetic

When it comes to MMOs, poetry may not immediately jump to mind -- unless, of course, you either really like poetry or are taking a poetry class. While we've gotten short stories to go with screenshots, this may well mark the first time we've gotten a poem to go along with one. That said, this particular poem isn't an original, but today's One Shots contributor, Matthew, obviously felt that it fit his mood and the mood of the Star Trek Online image that he sent in.

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

-- W.B. Yeats

If you're not poetic, no worries! We love to get screenshots from everyone -- lyrical poetry or limerick silliness are just a plus. Send in your image to us here at along with your name, the name of the game, and your note. Please make sure your image is at least 1024px wide and has little to no visible UI in it. We'll post it out here and give you the credit for sending it in!
