  • The LambLittle Lamb, who made thee? Dost thou know who made thee? Gave thee life, and bid thee feed, By the stream and o'er the mead; Gave thee clothing of delight, Softest clothing, woolly, bright; Gave thee such a tender voice, Making all the vales rejoice? Little Lamb, who made thee? Dost thou know who made thee? Little Lamb, I'll tell thee, Little Lamb, I'll tell thee. He is called by thy name, For He calls Himself a Lamb. He is meek, and He is mild; He became a little child. I a child, and thou a lamb, We are called by His name. Little Lamb, God bless thee! Little Lamb, God bless thee!

  • The TygerDare frame thy fearful symmetry? Tyger! Tyger! burning bright In the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye Could frame thy fearful symmetry? In what distant deeps or skies Burnt the fire of thine eyes? On what wings dare he aspire? What the hand dare sieze the fire? And what shoulder, & what art. Could twist the sinews of thy heart? And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet? What the hammer? what the chain? In what furnace was thy brain? What the anvil? what dread grasp Dare its deadly terrors clasp? When the stars threw down their spears, And watered heaven with their tears, Did he smile his work to see? Did he who made the Lamb make thee? Tyger! Tyger! burning bright In the forests of the night, What immortal hand or eye

  • Structure of PoemThe lamb-Blake, wrote this poem and designed it for the Lamb to resemble Jesus and his Christian values of gentleness and peace.The Tyger- As Blake was writing The Tyger, he composed it of many questions and continued the poem and left them unanswered.

  • Conclusion/Evaluation The lamb-The Rhyme scheme did contribute to the story, rather than distract. Blake, made it pretty clear to understand the poem.The Tyger-This poem was more difficult to understand because there were so many questions being asked and then they were never answered.

  • Personal RelationsWe kind of liked the poem. The Lamb. It was a lot easier to understand and it was more interesting the The Tyger was.The Tyger was boring, even though it used more descriptive words it didnt catch our attention.
