The Book of Urizen: Preludium

The Book of Urizen: Preludium

Of the primeval Priests assum’d power,
When Eternals spurn’d back his religion;
And gave him a place in the north,
Obscure, shadowy, void, solitary.

Eternals I hear your call gladly,
Dictate swift winged words, & fear not
To unfold your dark visions of torment.



Poem The Book of Urizen: Preludium - William Blake
