Because Stripy Cat is ♥️ 😊
Also because this famous poem is immediately striking and also rewards deeper, more-contemplative reading.
Blake engraved this poem more than once, and different copies contain varying punctuation.
I have retained some elements of Blake’s 18th-century punctuation, but have updated the spelling of the name of the eponymous stripy cat (from “Tyger” to ‘Tiger’), and have replaced Blake’s “sieze” with the currently-accepted spelling ‘seize’.
