Infant Joy
By William Blake (1757–1827)
 
‘I HAVE no name:
I am but two days old.’
What shall I call thee?
‘I happy am,
Joy is my name.’        5
Sweet joy befall thee!
 
Pretty joy!
Sweet joy, but two days old.
Sweet joy I call thee:
Thou dost smile,        10
I sing the while,
Sweet joy befall thee!
