The Blossom Blake

Bright and beautiful, Blake is a flower and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift and a gift.

'The Blossom' is an expression of a child whose delight in birds dresses his imagination. In nursery songs children sing about the sparrow as a merry bird and the robin as melancholic. According to the interpretation of J.H. Wicksteed the poem has connections with 'Infant Joy.' In 'Infant Joy' it is an unborn child of two days old that gives vent to his feelings. In this poem it is a mother who thinks of her child within her womb. 

Nature Clad in Beauty :

More than an emotional outburst the poem draws the simple revelries of birds when nature is clad in beauty. The cloudy elements of 'experience' are withdrawn, this interlude is not as joyful as 'The Echoing Green' or 'Infant Joy' though nature is not dry and void of its pets. There is the sparrow fleeting like an arrow and singing merrily; there is the robin also that sobs joyfully. Innocence is looming behind the scene but not of course as evident as in the sunny radiance of The Echoing Green. And if we accept the speaker as a girl with maternal instincts, we also notice her tendency towards growth and maturity. (Source: www.englishliterature.info)

Songs of Innocence and of Experience “the Blossom” Summary and Analysis

“The Blossom” is a two-stanza poem following an irregular rhyme scheme. Each sestet has an ABCAAC rhyme scheme, although some of the lines may qualify as near rhymes rather than true rhymes; for example, “Blossom” and “Bosom” are visual rather than aural rhymes, whereas “Robin” and “Sobbing” demonstrate the use of slant rhyme. The erratic nature of the rhymes parallels the seemingly arbitrary attitude of nature. Whereas a fixed rhyme scheme echoes the perfection of nature, this looser rhyme scheme shows nature as being harder to predict, if not entirely indifferent to human conventions.

The Blossom

Spring is a poem that is used to “welcome in the year”, the fact that the poem is written in spring time makes the reader think that Blake’s new year starts in the spring time and that his new year is when nature is remade and renewed, it’s when nature starts it’s new life when Blake celebrates his new year. At the time the romantic poets led a movement to celebrate nature and natural environments and felt that nature embodied the human imagination, this could be why Blake celebrates his new year in the spring time because as a poet he feels that nature is key to his imagination and creation, this makes the poems key meaning more clear, as they celebrate nature the biggest celebration would come when nature starts its new cycle of life.
