The Chimney Sweeper (Songs of Experience)

The Chimney Sweeper (Songs of Experience)

by William Blake

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

(2) Sea Level

"The Chimney Sweeper" is a pretty easy poem; a young child narrates most of it, and he uses simple words and simple rhymes. There are a few strange sentences, especially the last one, but overall Blake shouldn't give you any trouble.
