TheSpineView Have always loved this poem!❤️❤️❤️ 3mo
dabbe His drawing, too? 🤩🤩🤩 3mo
IndoorDame @dabbe yes! Though, I grabbed it off the internet not out of my copy of his book this morning and I also saw a version done in dark blues that looked more his style… posted this cause it was easier to read, but I‘m not sure if he drew both or if this has the colors digitally manipulated 🤔 3mo
dabbe @IndoorDame Either way it's GORGEOUS! 😍 3mo
IndoorDame @dabbe AGREED!!! I first fell in love with his poetry because of the art in the books! 3mo

A guided meditation inspired by a poem on Calm this morning. Love it! Nice way to start the day or get a 10 minute rest/recharge in. #PoetryMatters

William Blake has been coming up in my life a lot recently, so I picked this up yesterday.

I adore Patti Smith as well, and I enjoyed her short introduction. 🌸

jenniferw88 I did my BA dissertation on his portrayal of revolution in his poetry! 5y
m.galehuxley @jenniferw88 that‘s awesome! I‘d love to have that much of an understanding of his work. 5y

“Infant Joy”

“I have no name
I am but two days old.
What shall I call thee?
I happy am
Joy is my name,
Sweet joy befall thee!

Pretty joy!
Sweet joy but two days old,
Sweet joy I call thee;
Thou dost smile.
I sing the while
Sweet joy befall thee.”

Finished up Blake's Poetry over some veggie tacos, chips and salsa. There is a real beauty to his writing. I'll never forget the first time I read Sick Rose. Beautiful and moving.

WanderingBookaneer I have that edition! (edited) 7y

In high school English class William Blake was one of the first poets I really felt drawn too. Excited to be reading this book. Love this one.

Went to the Oakland Noir event tonight at Books Inc. really loved it. Saw this gem in the window high up in a beautiful poetry display and had to have it.

You know those writers that make you feel like maybe everyone else is smarter than you? Blake had that effect on me. I really struggled to connect in any way with the famed Romantic poet's work, aside from a smattering of beautiful phrases, and it has left me feeling like maybe I just don't "get it". Has anyone else had that experience with Blake? Or, on the other side of that coin, any Littens out there who adore Blake?

Bklover There are a lot of writers that make me feel that way. You are certainly not alone. I read Divine Image and just have this feeling that there is something HUGE I alone am missing. 7y

First poetry collection of 2017. These William Blake poems were all selected by Patti Smith, so I am beginning them in a cozy coffee shop, as she would have it.

BookBabe 😍😍😍 Omg, that's beautiful! Is that tomato soup? I want to be in this picture right now. 😋😋😋 7y
