we Overview Of Eternity By William Blake ~ Naija Poets
Eternity by William Blake expressed the opinion relating to freedom attached to pleasure. The poet was of the view that humans should not rip themselves off the endless possibilities of joy by sticking to a fixed style or way of life. He believed that such rigidity put humans life to premature end:
"He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;" (from line 1-2)
The rest two lines of the poem concluded that a soul with diversified form of joy and pleasure will live very long on earth somewhat eternity:
"But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sun rise." (from line 3-4)

The poem is as brief as proverb; with just 4 lines that seemed to rhyme. The language is simple and the poem is philosophical.
