What immortal hand or eye, Could frame thy fearful symmetry? In what distant deeps or skies. Burnt the fire of thine eyes? On what wings dare he aspire? What the hand, dare seize the fire?
What dread hand? & what dread feet?
Dare its deadly terrors clasp!
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
When the stars threw down their spears And water'd heaven with their tears: Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?
The poem the tyger is about an ugly tyger and they are trying to decide how god made the lamb and then somehow make the tyger. The theme is very sinister, evil, and dark. The structure is how the poem starts and eands with the same stanza.
