Ah Sun-flower! weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the Sun:
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the travellers journey is done.

Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow:
Arise from their graves and aspire,
Where my Sun-flower wishes to go.

(I’m using this listing to review Anne Malcolmson’s William Blake: An Introduction, since no listing for the book exists on Goodreads. You can find it on Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/William-Blake-I....)

"But most, through midnight streets I hear
How the youthful harlot's curse
Blasts the new-born infant's tear,
And blights with plagues the marriage hearse."


William Blake is probs my favourite poet, or is at least in the top ten.

To be honest this was likely to stay on my currently reading status for an age as I never tire of Blake's prose and consistently return yo it,dipping in and out of various bits as the mood takes

I positively adore William Blake. Wish I could turn a phrase as beautifully as he can. But I can't. {sigh}.

William Blake was an English poet, painter, and printmaker. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake's work is today considered seminal and significant in the history of both poetry and the visual arts.
