William Blake's "The Tyger"

We're reading Blake's Songs of Experience in my British Lit class and I've absolutely fallen in love with his illustrations. Thought I'd share this one of "The Tyger".

Travel the world, girl. See wonders and joy. But, yet, you know what you'll come up with, dear? Right back where you began: the circumference is a bitch. However, if you focus on the Great Beyond, you'll never go in reverse, you'll always see new sights cuzz God has YOU specifically in mind when he created the many universes. Looky...

Hey, girly, dunno if you're a writer, but this’ll help immensely on your writing journey (Upstairs) and, believe-you-me, you’d want nothing else if you experienced what I did. So, why should you love our exploded plethora of produce which’ll plant the seeds for you to grow to great heights?? PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK:

Quite a run-on-sentence… yet, Upstairs, you may push-the-hydraulic-envelope for endless exaggeration. WAIT!! THAT’S NOT ALL!! TELL’M WHAT THEY’LL RECEIVE, JOHNNY!! In that [in]sane landscape of tumultuous, thoroughbred metabolism high-above ’N faaar-beyond the paisley troposphere? Duuude! Just a drop-in-the-bucket in the many universes fulla audacious innuendo!! So, gain altitude, not attitude, and take front-row-seats, miss gorgeous, as the inexhaustible, irresistible intimacy from THE PowerPlaya shall blow-your-fragile-mind to peaces. Meet me Upstairs. Do that for us. Cya soon, girly.
