It suggests that the nurses mind and her perceptions would be the only topic of the poem. The first line is the same as the first line in the Nurses Song of innocence. By William Blake. I wander thro' each charter'd street, Near where the charter'd Thames does flow. And mark in every face I meet. Marks of weakness, marks of woe. In every cry of every Man, In every Infants cry of fear, In every voice: in every ban, The mind-forg'd manacles I hear. How the Chimney-sweepers cry. Every blackning Church appalls.
