Intorduction to the Songs of Experience

Written by: William Blake | Biography
 | Quotes (135) |
 Hear the voice of the Bard,
Who present, past, and future, sees;
Whose ears have heard
The Holy Word
That walked among the ancient tree;

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 slumbrous mass.
'Turn away no more; Why wilt thou turn away? The starry floor, The watery shore, Are given thee till the break of day.
'
