"The Lamb" by William Blake
"Little Lamb who made thee? / Dost thou know who made thee?"
"such a tender voice"
"Softest clothing, wooly, bright"
"He is called by thy name, / For he calls himself a Lamb."
"He is meek and he is mild; / He became a little child. / I a child and thou a lamb. / We are all called by his name."
The purpose of this poem, with it's simplistic, child-like form, diction, and repetition, is to instruct the reader that, He, Jesus, created both the lamb and the boy. The speaker's purpose is to extol the virtues Jesus taught: meekness, mildness, and peace. The poem's didactic, or instructional form, combined with the pastoral images of a lamb, stream, mead, and vales, also fits with the concept of Jesus as a shepherd and teacher of his flock (followers).
