Excerpt from A Lap Full of Seed
To you, kind Editors of the Academy, Daily News, Englishwoman, Westminster Gazette and Woman at Home, who, when I was very poor, not only printed some of these verses, but paid for them, my thanks for your hospitality and for permission to reprint.
And to you, generous folk, who spent some trouble and half a crown on 'The Golden Heresy,' my apologies for the resurrection of four of the shorter poems which appeared in that book. In the association of ideas they seemed to have a place here.
The quotations printed in small type are exclusively from the works of William Blake.
