Flower in the crannied wall

September 3, 2010

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, all in all,
I should know what God and man is.

~ Alfred Tennyson


“La grande zolla”, Albrecht Durer, 1503.
