In this poem the parents of the little girl Lyca fear that they will find their daughter "starved in the desert wild". When the parents trust the lion their sorrow disappears and (they) "nor fear the wolvish howl,
Nor the lion's growl." Blake could be saying by this, that outward appearances can be deceptive. The savage lion turns out to be the parent's saviour who looked after their daughter while she was lost. Blake could be hinting that in order to achieve happiness you have to look deeper and trust others, putting fears aside.
