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.

Excerpted from the poem “Auguries of Innocence” by William Blake.

 

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.

 

A robin redbreast in a cage
Puts all heaven in a rage.

 

A dove-house fill’d with doves and pigeons
Shudders hell thro’ all its regions.
A dog starv’d at his master’s gate
Predicts the ruin of the state….

 

—Attributed To William Blake
