    To See the World in a Grain of Sand is a collection of poems about incidents, memories, and meditations that span eight decades of the poet's life. 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 5: 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.

    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. According to Blake’s beauty, he found often in common places that we tend to overlook because we have seen them over and over again. But this simple beauty is that connects us with their creator, the divine power.   Sand is so tiny and ubiquitous that it’s easy to take for granted. But in his book The World in a Grain, author Vince Beiser traces the history of sand, exploring how it fundamentally shaped the world as we know it.“Sand is actually the most important solid substance on Earth,” he argues.
