(i) Oh there is blessing in this gentle breeze,

A visitant that while it fans my cheek

Doth seem half conscious of the joy it brings

From the green fields, and from yon azure sky.


(ii) We sat grown quiet at the name of love;

We saw the last embers of daylight die,

And in the trembling blue-green of the sky

A moon, worn as if it had been a shell

Washed by time's waters as they rose and fell

About the stars and broke in days and years.


(iii) All humane things are subject to decay,

And, when Fate summons, Monarchs must obey:


(iv) And thereupon

That beautiful mild woman for whose sake

There's many a one shall find out all heartache

On finding that her voice is sweet and low

Replied, 'To be born woman is to kno,,rr-

Although they do not talk of it at school-

That we must labour to be beautiful.'


(v) Tyger! Tyger! burning bright,

In the forests of the night,

What immortal hand or eye,

Dare frame thy fearful symmetry


(vi) I wonder by my troth, what thou, and I

Did, till we lov'd? were we not wean'd till


But suck'd on countrey pleasures, childishly?

Or snorted we i' the seaven sleepers den?

they can mend the fuse when the


goes dark

can make light swim and walls jump

in around me again

I can see my mother’s face again.


You must take good care of them with

your finest creams

never let the nails break or

skin go dry, only those wise fingers

know how to fix the thing

that makes my doll cry and they make

small animals out of clay.


Never let blades or anything sharp

and hurtful near them

don’t let bees or nettles

sting them don’t let fire or burning oil

try them


My father’s hands are beautiful, take

good care of them.
