The poem The Echoing Green is written by William Blake It is taken from SONGS OF INNOCENCE It is divine voice of childhood unchallenged by the test and doubts of later years Blake expresses in simple and lovely diction the happiness and innocence of a childs first thoughts about This is a pictorial poem The Echoing Green is a poem about a grassy field on a warm morning in late spring The poet gives a very beautiful description of a dawn and morning of spring The spring represents the life Morning is the beginning of life and the dark evening is the end This poem is a blend of child like innocence and grayness of later years It is symbolic and draws a contrast between youth and old age Blake has expressed broad meaning of the playground The children are carefree and they are not surrounded by any kind of worries because worries are associated with old age and pleasures with childhood The children are busy in games They are showing vibrant attitude and display high energy in their games They are laughing and thoroughly enjoying themselves Their voices echo in the field They travel on the wings of leisurely fancy and float far into the realm of calm and sweet childhood joy unaware of the pains and cutting realization they are going to encounter as the years fall in on them The nature also seems to join in with their joy as the sun shines with sheer brilliance over the playing children The azure sky also seems to be smiling at the joy of these innocent children The whole atmosphere further seems drunk with high-spirited fervor the church bells add their sonorous chimes to this festive atmosphere The poet symbolizes the innocence and delicacy of children with the birds The birds are happy and they sing their heart out The mellifluous chirping and singing of these feathered friends represents the joys and blessings
