Love to Faults is Always Blind

from by The Beguilers



Love to Faults is Always Blind (W. Blake)

Love to faults is always blind,

Always is to joy inclin’d,

Lawless, wing’d & unconfin’d,
And breaks all chains from every mind.

Deceit to secrecy confin’d,

Lawful, cautious & refin’d,

To every thing but interest blind,

And forges fetters for the mind.

There souls of men are bought and sold,
And milk-fed Infancy for gold;
And Youth to slaughter-houses led,
And Beauty, for a bit of bread.
