Jafa Jaunts: Sunflowers in Yellow Springs

Ah! Sun-Flower

Ah Sun-flower! weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the Sun:
Seeking after that the 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.
