William Blake Month: Bow of burning gold


Photographed by Philiberte de Flaugergues, c. 1920s.

Bring me my bow of burning gold!
Bring me my arrows of desire!
Bring me my spear! O clouds, unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire!

(William Blake, “Jerusalem.”)

Oh, hey — it’s William Blake month starting now.
