The Lamb Youth Quotes
How we cite our quotes: (line)
Little Lamb who made thee
Dost thou know who made thee (lines 1-2)
The speaker – himself a child – calls the lamb "little" as if it were a younger child or a pet. In the first line, he sounds like a curious boy marveling at nature, but in the second, he sounds more like a teacher.
Gave thee such a tender voice (line 7)
Just wait until that lamb hits puberty. Seriously, the lamb is humanized a lot like a pre-pubescent boy.
