William Blake (1757-1827) Auguries of Innocence (ca. 1803)
"Every Night and every Morn
Some to Misery are Born 
Every Morn and every Night
Some are Born to sweet delight 
Some are Born to sweet delight 
Some are Born to Endless Night 
We are led to Believe a Lie
When we see not Through the Eye
Which was Born in a Night to perish in a Night 
When the Soul Slept in Beams of Light 
God Appears and God is Light
But does a Human Form Display
To those who Dwell in Realms of day"
