To see a World in a Grain of Sand. A Poem by William Blake

First lines from Augeries of Innocence

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 was an English poet, painter, and printmaker. He came to national and international recognition in the decades after his life. UK regards him as one of our finest poets. The four lines of the poem reveal the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.

Profound lines worth remembering and meditating on.
