By William Blake
I wander thro' each charter'd street,
Near where the charter'd Thames does flow.
And mark in every face I meet
Marks of weakness, marks of woe.

In every cry of every Man,
In every Infants cry of fear,
In every voice: in every ban,
The mind-forg'd manacles I hear

How the Chimney-sweepers cry
Every blackning Church appalls,
And the hapless Soldiers sigh
Runs in blood down Palace walls

But most thro' midnight streets I hear
How the youthful Harlots curse
Blasts the new-born Infants tear
And blights with plagues the Marriage hearse

Claude Monet
Clouds of smoke
Left throughout the air,
An overwhelming sense evoked.
Under a roof he made aware
Detriments like pollution uncloaked.
Everything once calm, no longer there,

Majestic pastures and clear skies now rare.
Oppression and congestion invoked
Naturally by short brushstrokes.
Everything once calm, no longer there,
The world became aware.
