I saw a big sunflower in someone’s front garden. It made me smile all day.

Sunflower in garden, Lawson

Words to Walk With:
Ah Sun-flower by William Blake written in 1794
Ah! Sun-flower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the Sun,
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller’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 Sun-flower wishes to go.
