To See A World by William Blake
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.
(The imagery and concise simplicity of the poem inspire many up-close shots of small things. When added up, these shots would embody the poem’s message that a larger idea is made of many small parts.)
Who robbed the woods by Emily Dickinson
Who robbed the woods,
The trusting woods?
The unsuspecting trees
Brought out their burrs and mosses
His fantasy to please.
He scanned their trinkets, curious,
He grasped, he bore away.
What will the solemn hemlock,
What will the fir-tree say?
(A combination of shots about how man affects nature (perhaps a hand intrudes the frame and snatches away a beautiful flower?) could represent this poem as a social commentary.)
