Songs of Experience
by William Blake


Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush'd away.

5 Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?

For I dance
10 And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
15 And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
20 Or if I die.
