William Blake
Introduction (from Songs of Experience)
printer friendly version
Hear the voice of the Bard!
Who Present, Past, and Future sees,
Whose ears have heard
The Holy Word
That walk'd among the ancient trees;

Calling the lapsed Soul,
And weeping in the evening dew;
That might control
The starry pole,
And fallen fallen light renew!

"O Earth O Earth return!
Arise from out the dewy grass;
Night is worn,
And the morn
Rises from the slumberous mass.

"Turn away no more:
Why wilt thou turn away?
The starry floor
The watery shore
Is giv'n thee till the break of day."
