To See - Poem 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.

    Somehow this poem makes me feel that if
    I could go way back in time and meet with Blake,
    I would want to discuss with him for hours or days.
    I love this write. I think to write this
    at the time he was alive,
    is genius.
