Illustrated Songs of Innocence and Songs of Experience (relief etching printed in green ink and finished in watercolor)
My mother groand! my father wept.
Into the dangerous world I leapt,
Helpless, naked, piping loud;
Like a fiend hid in a cloud.
Struggling in my father's hands,
Striving against my swadling bands,
Bound and weary I thought best
To sulk upon my mother's breast. ■■
