Selected Poems by William BlakeA small collection of poems from 18th century Englishman William Blake. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, and viewed in some quarters as a madman, it wasnt until later his work was regarded as grand. Along with his paintings, he would be part of the Romantic Movement, and was also strongly influenced by the Church, politics and historical revolutions. Made up of the Songs of Innocence & Experience, arguably his most famous work, they are charming poems, with the early ones that had me thinking of the British countryside on a summers day, sitting under a tree and looking yonder at the picturesque landscape.
Sometimes its the small and simple things that lead to much beauty, and like other easy on the eye poets, most are a joy to read, and so full of wonder. My favorites were Holy Thursday, Divine Image and The Garden of Love.
A little Taste,
The modest Rose puts forth a thorn,
The humble sheep a threatning horn:
While the lily white shall in love delight,
Nor a thorn nor a threat stain her beauty bright
