Symbol and Image in William Blake

By George Wingfield Digby | Go to book overview

THE GATES OF PARADISE
For the Sexes

Mutual Forgiveness of each Vice
Such are the Gates of Paradise
Against the Accuser's chief desire
Who walked among the Stones of Fire
Jehovah's Finger Wrote the Law
Then Wept: then rose in Zeal & Awe
And in the midst of Sinai's heat
Hid it beneath his Mercy Seat
O Christians Christians! tell me Why
You rear it on your Altars high
.


The Keys

The Catterpiller on the Leaf
Reminds thee of thy Mothers Grief


of the Gates

1 My Eternal Man set in Repose
The Female from his darkness rose
And She found me beneath a Tree
A Mandrake & in her Veil hid me
Serpent Reasonings us entice
Of Good & Evil: Virtue & Vice
2 Doubt Self Jealous Watry folly
3 Struggling thro Earths Melancholy
4 Naked in Air in Shame & Fear
5 Blind in Fire with shield & spear
