Last week, we read The Chimney Sweeper from Songs of Innocence and we analysed in class. Today, we are going to work on a second poem written by Blake with the same title.
Take a look at the other poem, under the same title, which appears in his book Songs of Experience
THE CHIMNEY SWEEPER from Songs of Experience
A little black thing among the snow,
Crying “weep! ‘weep!” in notes of woe!
“Where are thy father and mother? say?”
“They are both gone up to the church to pray.
Because I was happy upon the heath,
And smil’d among the winter’s snow,
They clothed me in the clothes of death,
And taught me to sing the notes of woe.
And because I am happy and dance and sing,
They think they have done me no injury,
And are gone to praise God and his Priest and King,
Who make up a heaven of our misery.”

The Triangle Trade, also known as the triangular trade, is the name given to a system of trade that occurred during the colonial era in American History. New Englanders traded extensively, exporting many commodities such as fish, whale oil, furs, and rum. However, one distinct route that formed was the triangular trade. This pattern occurred as follows:
- New Englanders manufactured and shipped rum to the west coast of Africa in exchange for slaves.
- The slaves were taken on the “Middle Passage” to the West Indies where they were sold for molasses and money.
- The molasses would be sent to New England to make rum and start the entire system of trade all over again.
