    Can anyone explain why William spelled caterpillar incorrectly? I've checked several sites and noticed it is spelled wrong in all of them. Anyone know why? This is an amazing poem though. (Report) Reply

    Personally, I can't say anything except 'William Blake is a real artist & poet! ! '.
    While reading your poems, I realize and understand the real meaning of poetry.
    10 Indeed.
