Poem by William Blake

Songs of Innocence. Infant Joy

СI have no name:
I am but two days old.Т
What shall I call thee?
СI happy am,
Joy is my name.Т
Sweet joy befall thee!

Pretty joy!
Sweet joy, but two days old.
Sweet joy I call thee:
Thou dost smile,
I sing the while,
Sweet joy befall thee!

William Blake
