William Blake (1757–1827).  The Poetical Works.  1908.
 
Selections from ‘Jerusalem’
[Fourfold and Twofold Vision]
 
(Jerusalem, f. 49, ll. 21–23.)

THE VISIONS of Eternity, by reason of narrowèd perceptions,
Are become weak Visions of Time and Space, fix’d into furrows of Death;
Till deep dissimulation is the only defence an honest man has left.
