A Divine Image

William Blake
1757 –1827

Cruelty has a human heart,

   And Jealousy a human face;

 Terror the human form divine,

   And Secresy the human dress.

 

 The human dress is forged iron,

   The human form a fiery forge,

 The human face a furnace sealed,

   The human heart its hungry gorge.
