INFANT JOY by William Blake

I have no name/I am but two days old.-/What shall I call thee?/ I happy am/Joy is my name,-/Sweet joy befall thee!

Pretty joy!/Sweet joy but two days old,/Sweet joy I call thee;/Thou dost smile./I sing the while/Sweet joy befall thee.                                                                                                                                                                                                                       –
