OCTAVES IN AN OXFORD GARDEN: 8, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Blake hither brought his book-to con the sky
Last Line: And they are patient still and standing by.
Subject(s): History; Oxford, England; Historians


Blake hither brought his book — to con the sky,
Commanding squadrons of the upper seas
That streamed, impatient of Time's slow degrees,
Their pennoned fleets of phantasy on high.
O wing-shod Time, that we should bid thee fly!
Five hundred years good Bishop Wykeham's trees
Down there at New have known such lads as these,
And they are patient still and standing by.
