William Blake

(28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827 / London)

Day


The Sun arises in the East,
Cloth'd in robes of blood and gold;
Swords and spears and wrath increast
All around his bosom roll'd
Crown'd with warlike fires and raging desires.

    here, Blake creates a picture of sunrise, with the interesting hues of red and gold. He sees the sunrsys as 'swords' and 'spears, ' extending from around the sun. Also he sees the sun, as if it wore a crown made of fire. Incredible imagination. A brilliant write. An interesting read. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
