The Little Boy Lost
By William Blake (1757–1827)
 
I
‘FATHER! father! where are you going?
O, do not walk so fast.
Speak, father, speak to your little boy,
Or else I shall be lost.’
 
The night was dark, no father was there;        5
The child was wet with dew;
The mire was deep, and the child did weep,
And away the vapour flew.
