This is an OCR edition with typos.
Excerpt from book:
Like as an angel glittering in the sky In times of innocence and holy joy; The joyful shepherd stops his grateful song To hear the music of an angel's tongue. So when she speaks, the voice of Heaven I hear; So when we walk, nothing impure comes near; Each field seems Eden, and each calm retreat; Each village seems the haunt of holy feet. But that sweet village, where my black-eyed maid Closes her eyes in sleep beneath night's shade, Whene'er I enter, more than mortal fire Burns in my soul, and does my song inspire. SONG. WHEN early morn walks forth in sober gray, Then to my black-eyed maid I haste away, When evening sits beneath her dusky bower And gently sighs away the silent hour, The village-bell alarms, away I go And the vale darkens at my pensive woe. To that sweet village where my black-eyed maid Doth drop a tear beneath the silent shade, I turn my eyes ; and pensive as I go Curse my black stars, and bless my pleasing woe. Oft when the summer sleeps among the trees, Whispering faint murmurs to the scanty breeze, I walk the village round ; if at her side A youth doth walk in stolen joy and pride, I curse my stars in bitter grief and woe, That made my love so high and me so low. O should she e'er prove false, his limbs I'd tear And throw all pity on the burning air; I'd curse bright fortune for my mixed lot, And then I'd die in peace, and be forgot. TO THE MUSES. WHETHER on Ida's shady brow Or in the chambers of the East, The chambers of the Sun, that now From ancient melody have ceased; Whether in heaven ye wander fair Or the green corners of the earth, Or the blue regions of the air, Where the melodious winds have birth ; Whether on crystal rocks ye rove, Beneath the bosom of the sea Wandering in many a coral grove,...

    Needs interactive contents

    I really was interested in reading as much William Blake as I could and these cheaper e-books really helped out. The thing with this e-book is you cannot really just flip to any random page that your heart desires. With this, I felt like I had to read it from beginning to end without exploring it the way I normally would. When set to publisher default it read much better. To have the text is worth the money paid.
