    Songs of Innocence by William Blake

    1 Piping down the valleys wild,

    2 Piping songs of pleasant glee,

    3 On a cloud I saw a child,

    4 And he laughing said to me:

    5 "Pipe a song about a Lamb!"

    6 So I piped with merry cheer.

    7 "Piper, pipe that song again;"

    8 So I piped: he wept to hear.

    9 "Drop thy pipe, thy happy pipe;

    10 Sing thy songs of happy cheer:"

    11 So I sung the same again,

    12 While he wept with joy to hear.

    13 "Piper, sit thee down and write

    14 In a book, that all may read."

    15 So he vanish'd from my sight,

    16 And I pluck'd a hollow reed,

    17 And I made a rural pen,

    18 And I stain'd the water clear,

    19 And I wrote my happy songs

    20 Every child may joy to hear.
