"Flower in the crannied wall" is a poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson.

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.

Tennyson composed the poem in 1863 by the wishing well at Waggoners Wells.[1]
