William Blake

Utah in the Afternoon

Utah in the Afternoon

The Lilly of the valley breathing in the humble grass

Answer’d the lovely maid and said: “I am a watry weed,

And I am very small, and love to dwell in lowly vales;

So weak, the gilded butterfly scarce perches on my head;

Yet I am visited from heaven, and he that smiles on all

Walks in the valley and each morn over me spreads his hand.

William Blake ~ The Book of Thel, 1789 – 91
