THE LITTLE BOY LOST

By William Blake

“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,

       The child was wet with dew;

The mire was deep, and the child did weep,

       And away the vapour flew.

 (28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827)
