Songs of Innocence

When voices of children are heard on the green
And laughing is heard on the hill,
My heart is at rest within my breast
And everything else is still

Version 2

Version 2

Then come home my children the sun is gone down
And the dews of night arise
Come come leave off play, and let us away
Till the morning appears in the skies

Version 2

Version 2

No no let us play, for it is yet day
And we cannot go to sleep
Besides in the sky, the little birds fly
And the hills are all covered with sheep

Version 2

Version 2

Well well go & play till the light fades away
And then go home to bed
The little ones leaped & shouted & laugh’d
And all the hills echoed

-William Blake, “Nurse’s Song (Innocence)”

  1. Jenna, I would love to follow your blog here on WordPress, but I can’t locate a “Follow” button anywhere that would allow me to get your posts in my WordPress reader. So for now, I’ll follow by email. You have a beautiful family and a beautiful blog! (Ran into your mom and dad a couple of weeks ago at a restaurant in Flowery Branch. It was great to see them.)

  2. I need to have my IT guy (a.k.a. husband!) check out why there isn’t a Follow button! My parents said they ran into you and that they loved seeing you!
