Background

The value of adversity

A description of the experience

William Blake –from The Complete Poems

I heard the fury of the wind
Would blight all blossoms fair and true
And my sun it shone and shone
And my wind it never blew

But a blossom fair or true
Was not found on any tree
For all blossoms grew and grew
Fruitless, false though fair to see

The source of the experience

Blake, William
