The Lamb by William Blake.

Little lamb, who made thee?
Dost thou know who made thee,
Gave thee life, and bid thee feed
By the stream and o’er the mead;
Gave thee clothing of delight,
Softest clothing, woolly, bright;
Gave thee such a tender voice,
Making all the vales rejoice? 
    Little lamb, who made thee? 
    Dost thou know who made thee?

Little lamb, I’ll tell thee;
Little lamb, I’ll tell thee:
He is called by thy name,
For He calls Himself a Lamb.
He is meek, and He is mild,
He became a little child.
I a child, and thou a lamb,
We are called by His name.
Little lamb, God bless thee!
Little lamb, God bless thee!

In conversation with Shon Faye.

I went to the In Conversation event organised by Eastbourne Library this week. The author was Shon Faye- writer, broadcaster and activist. Shon presents the ‘Call Me Mother’ podcasts and wrote the critically acclaimed ‘Transgender Issue’ a landmark work that signals the beginning of a new, healthier conversation about trans life.

Faye talked about the Transgender Issue and the call for justice and solidarity between all marginalized people and minorities eloquently and with passion. An interesting hour spent on a Wednesday night in March.
