Analects of the Core: Blake on dawn

O Earth O Earth return!
Arise from out the dewy grass;
Night is worn,
And the mourn
Rises from the slumberous mass.

- from “Introduction” to Songs of Experience by William Blake, whose poetry among others’ will be considered by Prof. Christopher Ricks in a lecture next Tuesday for the students of CC202
