Song: ‘Memory, hither come’
By William Blake (1757–1827)
MEMORY, hither come,
And tune your merry notes:
And, while upon the wind
Your music floats,
I’ll pore upon the stream        5
Where sighing lovers dream,
And fish for fancies as they pass
Within the watery glass.
I’ll drink of the clear stream,
And hear the linnet’s song;        10
And there I’ll lie and dream
The day along:
And when night comes, I’ll go
To places fit for woe,
Walking along the darken’d valley        15
With silent melancholy.
