A Little Girl Lost

Rating: 3.2
Children of the future age,
Reading this indignant page,
Know that in a former time
Love, sweet love, was thought a crime.

In the age of gold,
Free from winter's cold,
Youth and maiden bright,
To the holy light,
Naked in the sunny beams delight.

Loved the theme and the rhyme of the poem. A well deserved selection as the 'Classic Poem of the Day'!

Know that in a former time Love, sweet love, was thought a crime.......still; somewhere some religions the sweet love refereed to crime of mind; where the love brings in mind of human the sense of God where the love makes the human as God, where the love makes God as human, where the love teaches to worship the human and humanity as God there still the love is avoided by some obnoxious terms of life!

I don't think this is William Blake's best work, but it is well designed and the meaning comes through.

Excellent breath-taking poem by the classical poet, somewhat cynical with an educating tone, yet very humorous! This poem doesn't sound quite as old-fashioned as its other fellow classics. CONGRATULATIONS to the family of this world-renowned and immortal poet!

The innocence of a time supposed by the writer here is to be taken metaphorically for we know if we know the history of the earth that this time of no winter cold and no dark night have never existed on this planet. Since the earth has been one there has been cold days and dark nights. This talks of a paradise on earth that was lost.
