|Thank you to the lovely Sara for this beautiful button.|
During this year studying English Literature and Creative Writing, I’ve developed a new appreciation for poetry. With this in mind, I thought that I’d start a new weekly feature on So Many Books, So Little Time in which I share with you my favourite poems. They may be ones I discover on my course or ones I’ve loved for a long time.
Hopefully some of you will join me in sharing some awesome poems.
Love’s Secret – William Blake
Never seek to tell thy love,
Love that never told can be;
For the gentle wind does move
I told my love, I told my love,
I told her all my heart;
Trembling, cold, in ghastly fears,
Ah! she did depart!
Soon as she was gone from me,
A traveller came by,
He took her with a sigh.
You’re all probably getting a little fed up with Blake now, but I just love his poems so much! This is a beautiful poem that I came across when looking up his poems that weren’t in my copy of Songs of Innocence and of Experience; and I like what I found.
