They have taken away my Sun-deer
The Tyger has bled the moon,
Dry red hills are all that’s left, dear,
Tho’ soft rains come soon.
Soft rains come all too soon, dear,
Tho’ the fields bloomed long ago.
The shut-eye whale drifts overhead
While the lion weeps below.
Ah, the shut-eye whale drifts overhead,
And the fields, the fields bloomed long ago.
