The sun does arise,
And make happy the skies;
The merry bells ring
To welcome the spring;
nice! it is good.really love the poem
It is not working
Blake’s poem celebrates the traditional rural community, before poverty and the industrial revolution drove agricultural workers in droves to seek jobs in smoky impersonal cities.
The mood is happy and carefree, celebrating a close bond between man and nature (stanza one.) The young play alongside the old (stanza two) who are reminded of their own youth as they sit and watch them contentedly on the village green, which echoes to the human voices and activities linking present to past. The last verse suggests both the end of the day and the end of a distinctive way of life.
Blake uses rhyming couplets throughout, and the result is a joyous poem that celebrates a country community bound together by the simplest of shared pleasures.
