HEAR THE VOICE OF THE BARD!

Hear the voice of the Bard!
Who Present, Past, & Future sees;
Whose ears have heard
The Holy Word
That walked 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 wat'ry shore,
Is giv'n thee till the break of day."



William Blake / 1794
from SONGS OF EXPERIENCE
