The Poet as Inspiration

by Carol A.

(with help from English poet William Blake)

To hold a world in a grain of sand

and Heaven in a wild flower.

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,

And eternity in an hour.

Every night and every morn
Some to misery are born.

Every morn and every night
Some are born to sweet delight!

Some are born to sweet delight.
Some are born to endless night.

We are led to believe a lie
when we see not thru the eye.

For every morn and every night
some are born to sweet delight!
