Friday Poetry

Hello everyone,

I hope this post finds you all well.

Now I have a confession, I do not like poetry. I know, you will find it hard to believe, but I have always struggled with it. Recently I have been thinking about this and thinking I need to address this situation, so I have set myself a challenge. The challenge is every Friday I will post a poem that I have enjoyed reading, this will make me read more poetry and hopefully find poets that I enjoy reading. Fingers crossed I learn to fall in love with poetry as I really think I am missing out.

Please feel free to recommend poems and poets to me in the comments, I really want to read as many different poems as I can.

So here is my chosen poem that I must admit I have always enjoyed, probably because it is nice and short.

“To see a World in a Grain of Sand”

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
