William Blake

1I was angry with my friend;
I told my wrath, my wrath did end.

I told it not, my wrath did grow.

2And I watered it in fears,
Night and morning with my tears:
And I sunned it with smiles,
And with soft deceitful wiles.

And he knew that it was mine.

4And into my garden stole,
When the night had veiled the pole;
In the morning glad I see;
My foe outstretched beneath the tree.

There are implied messages that he lured and tricked his foe to steal the apple from the garden and as a result, his foe met his demise (“My foe outstretched beneath the tree”). This scenario only shows the result of Evil if we let it conquer us.

3. What is the overall message of the poem?
In the opening lines, the poem narrates to us how the narrator’s wrath for his friend and his foe differed and how he handled the conflicts. For me, the simple message of the poem is do good, avoid Evil. On a more critical note, the symbolisms used by the author reflect to our religion and the image of the... Show More
