Ah Sun-flower! weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the Sun:
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the travellers 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.
Sunflower, God of the Sun... Sunflower symbol of adoration and rapture... Symbol of Clytia, a water nymph. It was one of favourite decorative motive of Victorian age... Sunflower is in form of Fermat's spiral, geometric perfection. But, sunflower is also important motive for poets of Romanticism!
Sunflower, such a beautiful creature, with head raised up to the sky and roots deep down in dark of heavy soil.
