Tyger, tyger…

We went out this evening for a pizza supper and afterwards went to have a look at the Bloomsbury Festival that was taking place nearby.

Today is the first day of the festival (it runs from October 15th to 24th) and we arrived too early because they were still setting up the displays. I did, however, photograph this neon-art tiger, blazing away merrily above a welcome sign.

Tyger, tyger…

Bright and fiery as it was, it reminded me of William Blake’s famous poem, The Tyger:

Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

See here (and many other sources) for the complete poem.
