Hear the voice of the Bard, Who present, past, and future, sees; Whose ears have heard
The Holy Word That walked among the ancient trees; Calling the lapsed soul, And weeping in the evening dew; That might control
The starry pole, And fallen, fallen light renew! “O Earth, O Earth, return! Arise from out the dewy grass! Night is worn,
And the morn Rises from the slumbrous mass. “Turn away no more; Why wilt thou turn away? The starry floor,
The watery shore, Is given thee till the break of day.” That was the “Introduction” poem from “Songs Of Experience”, written by William Blake. First published in 1794. Read by Frank Blissett.
