Poem: children, children, black&white

Tyger! Tyger! Burning bright…
“The Tyger,” William Blake
Dost thou know who made thee…
“The Lamb,” William Blake

children, children, black&white
do you know who made you

made you black
made you white
made you neither
day&night

children, children, black&white
do you know who loves you

we will see you
hold you tight
our precious children
black&white

— P.L. Thomas
