Transcript of I laid me down upon a bank,

The Garden Of Love...
By: William Blake
To the thistles and thorns of the waste;
Then I went to the heath and the wild,
And they told me how they were beguiled,

Driven out, and compelled to the chaste.
I laid me down upon a bank,
Where Love lay sleeping;
Weeping, weeping.
I heard among the rushes dank
A Chapel was built in the midst,

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