A Poison Tree - Poem 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 watered it in fears,
Night and morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with 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 veiled the pole;
In the morning glad I see
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.

    In the morning glad I see
    My foe outstretched beneath the tree. /// no need to nourish the anger and hate in the garden of life; sometimes own anger and hate buy the dooms day of life!

    Wrath is poison. Nurturing it yields poisonous fruits that kill humans. A wonderful theme so poetically narrated!
    Congratulations to the poet, posthumously, on the poem's selection as the 'Classic Poem of the Day'!

    Night and morning with my tears;
    And I sunned it with smiles, ...Love makes great to life's essence. Life blooms and beautifies ever. Anger never lasts for long. An amazing poem is well penned.

Tree Poems

  1. My Pretty Rose Tree

    A flower was offered to me, Such a flower as May never bore; But I said 'I've a pretty rose tree,' And I passed the sweet flower o'er. Then I went to my pretty rose tree, To tend her by day and by night; But my rose turned away with jealousy, And her thorns were my only delight.

  2. Farewell To Barn And Stack And Tree

    "Farewell to barn and stack and tree, Farewell to Severn shore. Terence, look your last at me, For I come home no more. "The sun burns on the half-mown hill, By now the blood is dried; And Maurice amongst the hay lies still And my knife is in his side. "My mother thinks us long away; 'Tis time the field were mown. She had two sons at rising day, To-night she'll be alone. "And here's a bloody hand to shake, And oh, man, here's good-bye; We'll sweat no more on scythe and rake, My bloody hands and I. "I wish you strength to bring you pride, And a love to keep you clean, And I wish you luck, come Lammastide, At racing on the green. "Long for me the rick will wait, And long will wait the fold, And long will stand the empty plate, And dinner will be cold."

  3. Under The Greenwood Tree

    Under the greenwood tree Who loves to lie with me, And turn his merry note Unto the sweet bird's throat, Come hither, come hither, come hither: Here shall he see No enemy But winter and rough weather. Who doth ambition shun, And loves to live i' the sun, Seeking the food he eats, And pleas'd with what he gets, Come hither, come hither, come hither: Here shall he see No enemy But winter and rough weather.

  4. Tree At My Window

    Tree at my window, window tree, My sash is lowered when night comes on; But let there never be curtain drawn Between you and me. Vague dream head lifted out of the ground, And thing next most diffuse to cloud, Not all your light tongues talking aloud Could be profound. But tree, I have seen you taken and tossed, And if you have seen me when I slept, You have seen me when I was taken and swept And all but lost. That day she put our heads together, Fate had her imagination about her, Your head so much concerned with outer, Mine with inner, weather.
