The Angel-William Blake
I dreamt a dream! What can it imply? And that I used to be a maiden Queen Guarded by an Angel gentle: Witless woe was inside beguiled! And I wept each evening and day, And he wiped my tears away; And I wept each day and evening, And hid from him my coronary heart's delight. So he took his wings, and fled; Then the morn blushed rosy purple. I dried my tears, and armed my fears With ten-thousand shields and spears. Quickly my Angel got here once more; I used to be armed, he got here in useless; For the time of youth was fled, And gray hairs had been on my head.
