The Garden Of Love



I went to the Garden of Love,
And saw what I never had seen;
A Chapel was built in the midst,
Where I used to play on the green.
And the gates of this Chapel were shut,
And 'Thou shalt not' writ over the door;
So I turned to the Garden of Love
That so many sweet flowers bore.
And I saw it was filled with graves,
And tombstones where flowers should be;
And priests in black gowns were walking their rounds,
And binding with briars my joys and desires.
By
William Blake

The only two poems I have memorized are by William Blake & this is one of them...
The why I can remember songs so easily is the musical partnership, so I'm not counting contemporary media...
