CHOICE POEMS AND LYRICS.

INTRODUCTION.
PIPING down the valleys wild,

Piping songs of pleasant glee,
On à 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, thy happy pipe,

Sing thy songs of happy cheer :"
So I sung 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 vanish'd from my sight;

And I pluck'd a hollow reed,
And I made a rural pen,

And I stain'd the water clear,
And I wrote my happy songs
Every child may joy to hear.

William Blake : 1757-1827. William Blake was an artist as well as a poet. He illus trated his own works, and many others, by hand-coloured etchings and copper-plate engravings of weird and fanciful design. There was a touch of insanity in his nature which showed itself in nearly all his work. His poems, though couched in simple language, are sometimes difficult to understand. But they are sweet and wild, and linger long in the mind; and their tendency is always elevating by reason of their purity, and protest against worldliness and all the meaner passions of men,
