Songs of Experience1789All the night in woe,

Lyca's parents go:

Over vallies deep.

While the desarts weep.Tired and woe-begone.

Hoarse with making moan:

Arm in arm seven days.

They trac'd the desert ways.Seven nights they sleep.

Among shadows deep:

And dream they see their child

Starvdd in desart wild.Pale thro' pathless ways

The fancied image strays.

Famish'd, weeping, weak

With hollow piteous shriekRising from unrest,

The trembling woman prest,

With feet of weary woe;

She could no further go.In his arms he bore.

Her arm'd with sorrow sore:

Till before their way

A couching lion lay.Turning back was vain,

Soon his heavy mane.

Bore them to the ground;

Then he stalk'd around.Smelling to his prey,

But their fears allay,

When he licks their hands:

And silent by them stands.They look upon his eyes

Fill'd with deep surprise:

And wondering behold.

A spirit arm'd in gold.On his head a crown

On his shoulders down,

Flow'd his golden hair.

Gone was all their care.Follow me he said,

Weep not for the maid;

In my palace deep.

Lyca lies asleep.Then they followed,

Where the vision led;

And saw their sleeping child,

Among tygers wild.To this day they dwell

In a lonely dell

Nor fear the wolvish howl,

Nor the lion's growl.

The Weeping Quill:
I am growing weary of the constant need to post coherent responses.
Have none of you deciphered the clear correlation between the "seven summers" and the seven days in which the world transpired through God's hands?
Lyca is the rudimentary woman of existence; she is the archetypal woman, whose innocence is being questioned as the years befall her fragile mind. Please closely compare The Little Girl Lost with the latter; it is integral to its meaning.

.: The Little GIrl Found :.

Good explanation. The lion is definitely a god-like symbol in this poem. I related it back to The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe where the Lion stood for an extremely powerful, holy, Christ-like figure. What I also picked up on is that the parents searched for Lyca for seven days and nights, the length of time the creation of the world came about. This is how Blake is relating Lyca to being innocent, because she it young and close to god and SEVEN years old. When Lyca's mother dreams that her daughter is wandering through the desert, pale and screaming, that is the "evil" that the Lion protects them from. I know that there is a deeper meaning, because this is an experience poem.

.: The Little Girl Found :.

What I think William was trying to say in this poem was that the lion that the parents met along the way was really a spirit (angel) in the form of a lion. He just says that even though someone may be lost in this world, there is always a guardian angel who watches over us. This angel will always protect us. The Little Girl in this poem was not even aware what was happening to her because when she fell asleep, the angel took her into his palace and she never woke up. then the angel told the parents where Lyca was. God always answers when we ask Him. He shows us the Path of Life. When God is with us we could never be lost. This is what i think Blake means in this poem.
