Wonders in My Garden My Sunflower and A Poem

I’m so happy I got my first sunflower so early in the year. I know, it’s only one now. It is probably a seed from last year’s sowing. I will be planting more seeds very soon 🤗

Ah Sunflower

by: William Blake (1757-1827)

Ah, Sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the sun;
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveler’s journey is done;

Where the youth pined away with desire,
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,
Arise from their graves, and aspire
Where my Sunflower wishes to go!
