THE LAMB (by William Blake - 1757 - 1827)



This is a poem by William Blake - read it carefully and think on the message it conveys:

Little Lamb, who made thee?

Dost thou know who made thee?

Gave thee life, and bid thee feed

By the stream and o'er the mead;

Gave thee clothing of delight,

Softest clothing, woolly, bright;

Gave thee such a tender voice,

Making all the vales rejoice?

Little Lamb, who made thee? Dost thou know who made thee?

Little Lamb, I'll tell thee,

Little Lamb, I'll tell thee,

He is called by thy name,

For he calls Himself a Lamb.

He is meek, and He is mild;

He became a little child.

I a child, and thou a lamb,

We are called by His name.

Little Lamb, God bless thee! Little Lamb, God bless thee!

Have a nice day, dear reader!
