The Clod and the Pebble

BY WILLIAM BLAKE

"Love seeketh not itself to please, 

Nor for itself hath any care, 

But for another gives its ease, 

And builds a Heaven in Hell's despair." 

 

So sung a little Clod of Clay 

Trodden with the cattle's feet, 

But a Pebble of the brook 

Warbled out these metres meet: 

 

"Love seeketh only self to please, 

To bind another to its delight, 

Joys in another's loss of ease, 

And builds a Hell in Heaven's despite."
