A world in a flower

To see a world in a grain of sand
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

~William Blake, Auguries of Innocence

  1. William Blake is one of my favourite poets. His religious content makes his work transcendent and applicable to all humankind.
