when I read books, magazines, etc. I find quotes, poems, etc. Some of the pictures I post are taken by me, some from online.

Garrison Keilor just wrote about Blake in his Writer's Almanac (I get it daily via email). It's Blake's 250th birthday. So I followed a few links to read up on Blake. The picture looks to me to be one of Blake's engravings. He was as good an artist and engraver as he was a poet. He was quite an eccentric and the English regard him with great honor ... which to me seems a particularly English thing to do.
That famous English hymn that you hear in all the movies starting with "And did those feet in ancient time " was written by Blake.
