Something Wonderful

Flower in the Crannied Wall

Flower in the crannied wall,
I pluck you out of the crannies,
I hold you here, root and all, in my hand,
Little flower—but if I could understand
What you are, root and all, and all in all,
I should know what God and man is.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson

    • Hi Sara,

      Thank you so much for sharing your mother’s love for this poem.
      It is so brief, yet to big and beautiful — it holds so much within it.
      For some reason, I felt moved to return to this poem for Something
      Wonderful — I must have known it was for someone special!

      Write on,
