    You're lost little girl;

    This is the second track on Strange Days (1967). The song’s title can be a reference to the poem “A Little Girl Lost”, by William Blake, written in 1794. Given the connection Morrison had with Blake’s work, it might just be.

    The Little Girl Lost is a 1794 poem published by William Blake in his collection Songs of Innocence and of Experience. This poem represents Blake’s pattern of the transition between “the spontaneous, imaginative Innocence of childhood” to the “complex and mature (but also more dangerous) adult state of Experience.” Could easily be taken as an homage to one Jim’s favorite poets.
