Infant Sorrow - Poem by William Blake

My mother groaned, my father wept,
Into the dangerous world I leapt;
Helpless, naked, piping loud,
Like a fiend hid in a cloud.

Struggling in my father's hands,
Striving against my swaddling bands,
Bound and weary, I thought best
To sulk upon my mother's breast.

    The Thing most people don't get is that there are two ways to look at this poem. First is describing a child being born and the second is a criticism of the industrial revolution. (Report) Reply
