Analysis of the Poem…Speaker: A child In the form of question and answerLamb is a symbol of Jesus; gentle and peacefulLine 14: symbol of Jesus Line 1: uses an alliteration, “little” Lamb, it is treated like a pet The speaker approaches God and the image of natureRepetition in both stanzas gives the poem a song like quality Poem is about Jesus; as pure as the child and as tame as the lamb Song… You make beautiful thingsThis song relates to The Lamb by William Blake as it talks about God and the many different things he created, repeatedly they say in the song that “you make beautiful things” at some point they add out of dust and out of us. The Lamb by William Blake is believed to be a child speaking, and in the first line the child asks “Little Lamb who made thee.” Here the child is asking a question to the lamb, as if it is going to answer their question. Both the poem and the song make it easy to assume that they are both talking about God, as who else could be able to create “beautiful things from dust.” and in the poem “He is called by thy name, For he calls himself a Lamb: He is meek & he is mild, He became a little child: I a child & thou a lamb, We are called by his name.” QUESTION PERIODIn all, The Lamb written by William Blake, uses lamb as a symbol of innocence and gentleness all that could be related to a child, a lamb is known as being a baby sheep, showing the connection that children and lambs have the same characteristics as do sheep and adults who have more experience, but also become more harsh. Both the song and the poem both show the creation of God, and how it is understood by many, both the song and the poem praise God for his creations.
