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.
*This poem is very hard to understand...can you please help me INTERPRET the meaning of this poem LINE BY LINE?
It really fustrates me that I can't understand it...please don't tell me everyone has a different meaning...I KNOW there must be a general meaning...

Just some random thoughts.
Re-reading it you get a very good rhythm
The poet has seen a flower struggling to survive in a crack
He/ she plucks it out of curiosity
It is a miracle of life but curiosity has killed it
The writer had the power of life and death for the flower
What is life ........where does the person / flower " go " when dead
If we could understand that relationship then we might understand something about God
Hope that helps you think about the poem .....Who is it by ?
