Clement Clarke Moore (July 15, 1779 – July 10, 1863) was an American Professor of Oriental and Greek Literature, as well as Divinity and Biblical Learning, at the General Theological Seminary of the Protestant Episcopal Church. He is the author of the yuletide poem “A Visit from St. Nicholas”, which later became famous as “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas”. This poem seems to be a ‘moral’ version of “The NIght Before Christmas”.

The Garden of Love by William Blake

LibriVox Weekly PoemLibriVox volunteers bring you 14 recordings of:
“The Garden of Love” by William Blake (1757-1827)

This was the weekly poetry project for November 10th to Novemeber 17th, 2013.

William Blake (28 November 1757 – 12 August 1827) was an English poet, painter and printmaker. Largely unrecognised during his lifetime, Blake is now considered a seminal figure in the history of the poetry and visual arts of the Romantic Age.
He was considered mad by contemporaries for his idiosyncratic views, Blake is held in high regard by later critics for his expressiveness and creativity, and for the philosophical and mystical undercurrents within his work.
