Songs of Innocence

by William Blake (1757-1827)

Piping down the valleys wild,
Piping songs of pleasant glee,
On a cloud I saw a child,
And he laughing said to me:

“Pipe a song
about a Lamb!”
So I piped with merry cheer.
“Piper, pipe that song again”;
So I piped: he wept to hear.

“Drop thy pipe,
they happy pipe;
Sing thy songs of happy cheer”;
So I sang the same again,
While he wept with joy to hear.

“Piper, sit thee
down and write
In a book, that all may read.”
So he vanished from my sight,
And I plucked a hollow reed,

And I made a rural
pen,
And I stained the water clear,
And I wrote my happy songs
Every child may joy to hear.
