Thread Name: Tiger Tiger Burning Bright (William Blake)
Subject: RE: Tiger Tiger Burning Bright
Many, many years ago in the 1960's there was an episode of American TV program called, "Dr. Kildare" staring Richard Chamberlin as the doctor in this weekly series. I was just a kid but watched the show with my parents. (thought Dr. Kildare was soooo cute)and asked my parents to take me to a doctor when I grew up that looked like Dr. Kildare. (ha, ha, didn't happen.)
Well one episode (I don't know or recall why it was recited) but this wonderful poem, "Tiger, Tiger, Burning Bright" was read on this program one night. I still remember hearing this poem as a little girl from that TV program. Could be my father loved poetry and although he had never read that poem to me, he read many poems to me and so my love for poetry began early on.
