Introduction to the Songs of Innocence
by William Blake

Piping down the valleys wild
Piping songs of pleasant glee
On a cloud I saw a child
And he laughing said to me:

"Piper, pipe a song about a lamb!"
So I piped with merry chear
"Piper, pipe that song again!"
So I piped, he wept to hear

"Drop thy pipe, thy happy pipe
"Sing thy songs of happy chear!"
So I sung the same again
While he wept with joy to hear

"Piper, sit thee down and write
"In a book that all may read!"
So he vanished from my sight
And I pluck'd a hollow reed

And I made a rural pen
And I stained the water clear
And I wrote my happy songs
Every child may joy to hear
