William Blake (1757–1827).  The Poetical Works.  1908.
 
Poems from the Rossetti MS.: Earlier Poems
I laid me down upon a Bank
 
I LAID me down upon a bank,
Where Love lay sleeping;
I heard among the rushes dank
Weeping, weeping.
 
Then I went to the heath and the wild,        5
To the thistles and thorns of the waste;
And they told me how they were beguil’d,
Driven out, and compell’d to be chaste.
