Poetry of William Blake

THE LITTLE BOY LOST

'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.
