    1. To see a World in a Grain of SandAnd a Heaven in a Wild Flower Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hourA Robin Red breast in a CagePuts all Heaven in a Rage A Dove house filld with Doves & PigeonsShudders Hell thr' all its regions A dog starvd at his Masters GatePredicts the ruin of the State A Horse misusd upon the RoadCalls to Heaven for Human blood Each outcry of the hunted HareA fibre from the Brain does tear A Skylark wounded in the wing A Cherubim does cease to si [...]

    6. The poem has to be read within the context of when it was written. That would be the Industrial Revolution in England specifically London. Blake was witness to child labor which included chimney sweepers which would cut the life of children dramatically. Of course he was witness to prostitution and the merciless life of factory workers and the epic divide between the rich and the poor. Basically how inhumane man was to his fellow man. Not only that he mourned the transition from the natural worl [...]

    8. the first quartain of the poem is taken in the movie Lara Croft Tomb Raider! that is what inspired me to read this in the first place. and am glad i did! Blake was a maestro! beautiful imagery!
