Daybreak

William Blake (1757–1827)
 
TO 1 find the Western path,
Right through the Gates of Wrath
    I urge my way;
Sweet Mercy leads me on
With soft repentant moan:        5
    I see the break of day.
 
The war of swords and spears,
Melted by dewy tears,
    Exhales on high;
The Sun is freed from fears,        10
And with soft grateful tears
    Ascends the sky.
 
Note 1. Blake. Daybreak. ‘Ideas of Good and Evil’. [back]
