WILLIAM BLAKE
WELCOME, STRANGER, TO THIS PLACE
Blake-Welcome-Stranger

(Song First by a Shepherd by William Blake (1757-1827)


Welcome, stranger, to this place,

where joy doth sit on every bough;

paleness flies from every face;

we reap not what we do not sow.

Innocence doth like a rose

bloom on every maiden's cheek;

honour twines around her brows

the jewel health adorns her neck.
