Inspire Me Thursday- Vernal Equinox

Vernal Equinox
1789- Song of Innocence
The Echoing Green
by William Blake
The Sun does arise,
And make happy the skies.
The merry bells ring,
To welcome the Spring.
The sky-lark and thrush,
The birds of the bush,
Sing louder around,
To the bells chearful sound,
While our sports shall be seen
On the Echoing Green.

    This is beautiful! I love the greens (one of my favorite colors) and the poem. Blake did the series of Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience as a social commentary. The Innocence poems show a childlike or ideal point of view whereas the Experience poems offer a more realistic point of view. A good contrast can be found in the two versions of the chimney sweeper poems…rather heartbreaking! Anyway, this is beautiful and it portrays the essence of the poem’s words so well. Your work is so inspiring and uplifting!

  4. Beautiful. I love the leaves on her dress and the suggestion of the flowers in the background. Brandi
