His Voice Still Echos
Verses by William Blake


Hear the voice of the Bard!
Who Present, Past, & Future sees,
Whose ears have heard
The Holy Word
That walk'd among the ancient trees.

I travel'd thro' a Land of Men,
A land of Men & Women too,
And heard & saw such dreadfull things
As cold Earth wanderers never knew.

'O what Land is the Land of Dreams?
What are its Mountains & what are its Streams?

'Father, O father what do we here
In this land of unbelief & fear?
The Land of Dreams is better far,
Above the light of the Morning Star.'

Every Night & every Morn
Some to Misery are Born.
Every morn & every Night
Some are Born to sweet delight.
Some are Born to sweet delight,
Some are Born Endless Night.

If the doors of perception were cleansed,
every thing would appear to man as it is,
infinite.

To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.

One thought fills immensity

Hear the voice of the Bard!


All the verses are from the works of William Blake. This piece is an arrangement. In music, composers have often done arrangements of the works of other composers. I've thought about doing this for a long time now, even though I haven't seen this done for poetry. As the emperor said in the move Amadeus "Well, there you have it."
