Songs of Experience
by William Blake

The CLOD & the PEBBLE

Love seeketh not Itself to please,
Nor for itself hath any care;
But for another gives its ease,
And builds a Heaven in Hells despair.

5 So sang a little Clod of Clay,
Trodden with the cattles feet:
But a Pebble of the brook,
Warbled out these metres meet.

Love seeketh only Self to please,
10 To bind another to Its delight:
Joys in anothers loss of ease,
And builds a Hell in Heavens despite.
