Poem: The Blind Boy

O say, what is that thing called light, Which I can ne’er enjoy? What is the blessing of the sight? O tell your poor blind boy! You talk of wondrous things you see, You say the sun shines bright;

O say, what is that thing called light,
Which I can ne’er enjoy?
What is the blessing of the sight?
O tell your poor blind boy!
You talk of wondrous things you see,
You say the sun shines bright;
I feel him warm, but how can he
Then make it day or night?
My day or night myself I make
Whene’er I sleep or play;
And could I ever keep awake
With me ’twere always day.
With heavy sighs I often hear
You mourn my hapless woe;
But sure with patience I may bear
A loss I ne’er know.
Then let not what I cannot have
My cheer of mind destroy;
Whilst thus I sing, I am a king,
Although a poor blind boy.
The Blind Boy
