Tiger, tiger, burning bright


Tiger, tiger, burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare seize the fire?

--William Blake--

Very subtle blending - the sort of piece you can look at over and over, and always see more detail.
