CHILDREN ROUND FIRE
LET US BE THE CHILDREN AROUND BLAKE'S FIRE
As I read "The Chimney Sweeper" presented in the post above, I realized the the boy in this picture and Tom Dacre of the poem both have shaved heads. So the little boy represented in the picture is likely a chimney sweeper, and all three around the fire represent street children huddled together for warmth as well as light.
