MOTTO TO THE SONGS OF INNOCENCE & OF EXPERIENCE, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: The good are attracted by men's perceptions
Last Line: And the eagle is known from the owl
Subject(s): Bible; Mythology


The Good are attracted by Mens perceptions
And Think not for themselves
Till Experience teaches them to catch
And to cage the Fairies & Elves

And then the Knave begins to snarl
And the Hypocrite to howl
And all his good Friends shew their private ends
And the Eagle is known from the Owl
