"Eternity into an Hour" by William Blake (1757-1827) from "Auguries of Innocence". Translated into ASL in August 2008.
To see a world in a grain of sand
And heaven in a wild flower
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.

Translated into American Sign Language from:

To see the essence of the eclipse
Which was its perfect darkness.
I stood in the cold on the porch
And could not think of anything so perfect
As mans hope of light in the face of darkness.
