William Blake (1757-1827) was an English poet who wrote this inspiring poem found in Punisher Max One Shot story line that bears the same title as the poem, Tyger! Tyger!

Punisher Max Poem, Tyger Tyger.

Tyger! Tyger! Burning bright!

In the forest of the night

What immortal hand or eye

Frame Thy Fearful Symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies

burnt the fire of thine eyes?

On what wings dare he inspires?

What the Hand dare seize the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art

could twist the sinews of thy heart?

And when thy heart began to beat

What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? What the chain?

In what furnace was thy brain?

What the anvil? What dread grasp

dare its deadly terrors clasp?

When the stars threw down their spears,

and watered Heaven with their tears,

did he smile his work to see

Did he who made the lamb make thee?

Tyger! Tyger! Burning bright!

In the forest of the night

What immortal hand or eye

Frame Thy Fearful Symmetry?
