Blake, William - My roots are brandished in the heavens, my fruits in earth beneath
Type of Spiritual Experience
Blake's "The Wandering Moon"...
A description of the experience
William Blake – from The Complete Poems
My roots are brandished in the heavens, my fruits in earth beneath
Surge, foam and labour into life, first born and first consumed
Consumed and consuming
Then why shouldst thou accursed mother bring me into life?
I wrap my turban of thick clouds around my labouring head
And fold the sheety waters as a mantle round my limbs
And who shall bind the infinite with an eternal band?
To compass it with swaddling bands? And who shall cherish it
With milk and honey
I see it smile and I roll inward and my voice is past
She ceased and rolled her shady clouds
