William blake - The Lamb

K
kimgravata

William Blake was an English poet, painter and printmaker born in London in 1757. He was known for his vivid imagination and claimed to see visions of gods and angels. The poem "The Lamb" questions who made "us", the lamb, and describes our creator as one who provides for our needs and calls himself by our name, as he was meek and mild, becoming human as a child. The poem answers that our maker is God and wishes God's blessing upon the lamb.

The Lamb 
By William Blake
Little Lamb, who made thee? 
Dost thou know who made thee? 
Gave thee life and bade thee feed 
By the stream and o’er the mead: 
Gave thee clothing of delight, 
* Bade (bid)- to offer 
* Mead – an alcoholic drink of fermented honey 
* Thou/Thee – ‘You’ 
* Little Lamb – Us 
Blake question ‘us’ of who made us and if we know who he 
was. The one who gave us life, food and clothing of great 
pleasure as of the flow of our life.
Softest clothing, wooly, bright; 
Gave thee such a tender voice, 
Making all the vales rejoice? 
Little Lamb, who made thee? 
Dost thou know who made thee? 
* Vales - valley 
* Dost – ‘do’ 
* Thee – ‘you’ 
He gave you the best clothing he can give: the softest, the 
wooly and the bright. He also gave you the voice so you may 
speak your happiness. He then repeat the question he asked in 
the first line. 
He is now asking if we have then realized who is our maker 
after what he have mentioned about him.
