The Fly

Martha Redbone Roots Project
Words by William Blake, Music by Martha Redbone, Aaron Whitby & John McEuen


The Fly
Little Fly
Thy summers play,
My thoughtless hand
Has brush’d away.  
Am not I
A fly like thee?
Or art not thou
A man like me?  

For I dance
And drink & sing:
Till some blind hand
Shall brush my wing.  

If thought is life
And strength & breath:
And the want
Of thought is death;

Then am I
A happy fly,
If I live,
Or if I die.
