lyrics

A Poison Tree
by William Blake
I was angry with my friend:
I told my wrath, my wrath did end
I was angry with my foe;
I told it not, my wrath did grow
And I water'd it in fears,
Night & morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with my smiles
And with soft deceitful wiles.
And it grew both day and night,
Till it bore an apple bright;
And my foe beheld it shine,
And he knew that it was mine,
And into my garden stole
When the night had veil'd the pole:
In the morning glad I see
My foe outstretch'd beneath the tree
