William Blake (born 28 November 1757, died 12 August 1827) is an English poet.

His poem Auguries of Innocence plays an important role in the first Tomb Raider Movie, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

The first four lines are found by Lara Croft in a letter from her father.

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.
William Blake, Auguries of Innocence, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

These lead her to a book containing the poem in which she then finds a more important letter hidden by her father.

The first line will also help her to find the last missing piece of the Triangle of Light, later throughout the adventure.
