Things I enjoy #2 - Poetry

I love the written word. I love language. My first language is Welsh , however I speak little of it these days as not many of my friends understand it it. Welsh poetry is simply divine- if I posted any here then no-one would understand.

I love English Poetry just as much and even more when I hear it 'performed' or read 'live'. This is one of my favourites with accompanying picture, not that it is a wild flower but it just seems to fit in with these words by William Blake from his 'Auguries of Innocence'.

"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.
