Thou fair hair'd angel of the evening,

Now, while the sun rests on the mountains light,

Thy bright torch of love; Thy radiant crown

Put on, and smile upon our evening bed!

Smile on our loves; and when thou drawest the

Blue curtains, scatter thy silver dew

On every flower that shuts its sweet eyes

In timely sleep. Let thy west wind sleep on

The lake; speak silence with thy glimmering eyes

And wash the dusk with silver. Soon, full, soon,

Dost thou withdraw; Then, the wolf rages wide,

And the lion glares thro' the dun forest.

The fleece of our flocks are covered with

Thy sacred dew; Protect them with thine influence.

For me"to the evening star"by William Blake is quite a complicated sonnet."Evening star"is referred to planet Venus the Roman goddess of love and beauty.The poem speaks about the natural phenomena of dusk turning to night.Night time is the time that all goes to rest."On every flower that shut its sweet eyes"proves that night is the time that all should rest.Of course the night is pleasant and peaceful,but its dangerous in the night.The poet describes this by using the lines"then the wolf rages wide,And then the lion glares through the dun x the dangers of the night.Blake then pleads the goddess Venus to protect him and the many of the world with "thine influence" referred to as goddess Venus's power.

William blake- poet
You bright angel of the evening,
now while the sun sets behind the mountains,
shower your blessings upon our upon the whole environment,protect our lovers, relations,
and while you bring the nighttime,
scatter your blessed, holy water,
on every flower that sleeps with the time,
let the wind blow on,
the lake calmly, shining because of the moonlight [or maybe the goddess]
and turn dusk into light[brightness]
when you go away,the wild animals find a chance to destroy the innocent as there's no light... [crimes r oftenly done at night time]
and the sheep are roaming freely
so protect them with your influence....

[AMEN]

the poet is addressing the evening star also known as Venus.Venus being the roman goddess of love and fertility is asked by the poet to protect the innocents when the evil ones rage on the dark times.I also think that this poem is about the dark side of every human so that the poet is asking the goddess to sprinkle dew so that the good side of the person would not be devoured by their bad

In this poem the brillian poet William blake writes with flamboyance and poetic richness about the goddess and epitome of love,fertility and beauty. He projects her as a protecor not just a beautiful figure. He calls her fair haired because of her beautiful hair.Here the poet also refers to the planet venus which is personified as a lady. After sun sets at dusk she comes out n shines with love and wear her shinig crown. she blesses the flowers that shut their petals in the form of dew.The blue curtains are a metaphor for the night sky because it looks blue. She is asked by the poet to make the wild west winds rest over the lake and spread silence and peace all over.Also the poet asks her to wash the sky with stars which are silver.As night becomes more in effect and the sky is completely dark that iis the time when criminals are going to let loose the beast inside them.The lions are going to prey upon the sheep so the poet requests venus to protect them through her dew , her blessings. Here the lions and the wolves are the criminals that come during night and the sheep are the innocent people, victims.

To me, the writer is asking the Evening Star to protect all the earth during the night. To ask it to protect the soul of others, and even a beloved pet. A beloved dog who has just passed, most likely ~

I saw sexual allusions everywhere ==\' i may be wrong seeing all your comments... In fact i had this texte this morning as a test, so i\'ml actually depressed because you made me realise that i\'m going to have a BAD MARK well the lion who glares the dun forest... to me it was quite obvious... usually i\'m not perverted... I guess that\'s the consequence of living in a world where Lady Gaga is a queen....

My thoughts in William Blake\'s position.-
Fair haired angel(Venus) angel of the evening(evening star),
While the sun is starting to rest on the mountains,
Rekindle the shining torch of love and wear your Radiant Crown,
and bless our(other people and himself) resting bed(earth)!
Smile on the ones we love may it be relatives or lovers,
And while you draw the blue curtain(the blueish sky), scatter your
silver dew(blessing in the form of a liquid in this case)on almost every flower that closes its eyes(petals of flower) in order to obtain calm and
sleep. Command the west wind* to calm down and not destroy the floral beauty of the forest. Command silence and order in the forest through your beautiful and glimmering(shining) eyes. Paint the curtain(sky) with silver(stars and moon) so that their light reaches us and protects us. I know you will withdraw(leave) soon and when you do the dangers of the night(dangerous beasts, wild animals, thieves and robbers) will thrive. The wolf will howl in pleasure and the lion will pensively stare at a flock of sheep planning to attack... I pray you(Venus), let the sprinkled dew(blessing) cover the flocks of sheep(fleece is the wool of sheep) and protect them through it.

I was thinking that in this poem Blake is trying to personify, and illustrate the moon. I liked the other suggestions I have read, because they make sense as well but I thought of the moon because of this text-
\"Thou fair hair\'d angel of the evening\"
\"Now, while the sun rests on the mountains light,
and also,
\"Soon, full, soon,\"
Also, many times he refers to silver, or spreading silver over objects, this also makes me believe that he could have been referring to the moon.
Hope this was helpful =D

Read the poem as you would a story, and then and only then will you understand its meaning.

This is a soonet (14 lined poem).It means that the roman goddess of love (venus) who becomes the evening star as venus is seen in the evenings comes after the sun has set and has hidden behind the mountains.Then she comes and pulls the \"blue curtains\", making the sky look blue and spread her silvery dew drops on every flower that usually shuts its petals at night (eg:rose, etc).she makes the west wind sleep on the lakes and then with her glimmering,shiny eyes she proclaims silence to the world without speaking.And she washes thhe sky with the silver dusk which means that the stars that appear silver soon fill the sky as the night arrives and makes the sky look like silver.Then the time comes when she has to go and then again return in the morning since she also comes in the morning.As soon as she goes, the wild animals (eg:lions, wolves,etc) find a chance to eat the innocents (eg:sheeps, humans, etc).But then the poet wishes that the dew drops that the evening star had scattered on humans and sheeps protect them from the lions and the wolves.
Thankyou.Hope this information is helpful for you.

His concern is that darkness is drawing nigh and the sheep will be in danger. His is a prayer for protection from the evening star (Christ is referred to as the Morning Star) Rev. 22:16 but also as the Alpha and Omega- beginning and the end, hence the Evening Star too. He is asking for Jesus' Spirit to descend and protect.

The Evening star is Venus, and Venus is the godess of love. William Blake was a romantic poet.I guess what the poem means is when he sees this star in the night and when he wakes up in the morning he thinks of his one true love.
