94. ‘Flower in the crannied wall’
By Alfred, Lord Tennyson  (1809–1892)
  
FLOWER in the crannied wall,
I pluck you out of the crannies;—
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,        5
I should know what God and man is.
