1. Glory of Sunflower
by L. Gayle
Always remember the sunflower
Whose face looks toward the sun.
She drinks his beauty in her face
And like him she becomes.
Her glory is like his glory
It’s strong and true and good.
You know she is a source of joy;
Her seed gives life and food.
This special flower has much to give
Though fragrance she has none.
She teaches us to look above
At god’s own perfect son.
2. Wild Beauty
by Paula T. Calhoun
Whenever my sunflowers are in bloom
even if the sky is dark with clouds,
I can drape myself with floral light
and feel the warmth of summer sun.
Their rich meadow scent fills the air,
and towhees, cardinals and chickadees
delight in the snapping wealth of seeds,
eating their fill, spreading them ’round.
Each evening, on my garden stroll
I find fresh beauty to delight me.
The setting sun’s roseate, golden rays
draw my eyes to the modest, wee clover.
The shy clover blossoms, snowy white,
offer their sweetness to every sense,
delighting the eye, scent-calling the honeybees
who turn their essence to sweet nectar.
The bright and subtle attractions
of a wild summer garden
bring to each day their own peculiar and
wondrous, ever-new, inimitable joys.
3. The Sunflower
by Dora Greenwell
Till the slow daylight pale,
A willing slave, fast bound to one above,
I wait; he seems to speed, and change, and fail;
I know he will not move.
I lift my golden orb
To his, unsmitten when the roses die,
And in my broad and burning disk absorb
The splendors of his eye.
His eye is like a clear
Keen flame that searches through me; I must droop
Upon my stalk, I cannot reach his sphere;
To mine he cannot stoop.
I win not my desire,
And yet I fail not of my guerdon, lo!
A thousand flickering darts and tongues of fire
Around me spread and glow;
All rayed and crowned, I miss
No queenly state until the summer wane,
The hours flit by; none knoweth of my bliss,
And none has guessed my pain;
I follow one above,
I track the shadow of his steps, I grow
Most like to him I love
Of all that shines below.
4. Saved by Sunflower
by David Nelson
A very strong storm was arriving,
there were large black clouds coming from the east,
strong gusting turbulent winds threatening to snap everything,
severe down pouring of flooding rain,
as if the clouds were crying out in pain,
it did not seem there would be anyway to save the flower garden,
nothing could survive this unannounced exploding of nature,
this seemingly uncontrollable outburst,
something, maybe everything was going to be destroyed,
this day turned in to this night of hell,
the rain, the wind, the flashes of lightning,
this violent death would not be stopped this time,
then a small voice could barely be heard,
at first it was ignored, flicked away like a mosquito,
the voice did not give up though, once again it cried out,
once again it was ignored, brushed aside,
the voice continued gaining strength, it refused to be shut down,
the creator of the storm suddenly took a step back,
looking down to see where this voice was coming from,
it was emanating from this one lone sunflower,
it was the sunflower that had been given the name Perly,
Perly would not, could not be denied as she screamed out,
leave this garden oh evil storm, I will not except the outcome,
the outcome that you predict will never occur, we are fighters,
we will never give in to your senseless urges,
please wake up and hear my plea for sanity,
the storm started to weaken, slowly at first, but continued
gaining momentum loosing it’s grip on this act of violence
until finally succumbing to this cry of desperation from
the little sunflower.
Gradually, the wind stopped blowing,
the rain stopped falling,
the sun began peaking thru the clouds.
Perly Sunflower had saved the lives of all the other flowers
in the garden, and the life of gardens caretaker.
A plaque is now erected on this spot proclaiming the
bravery of this little sunflower that would not give in,
would not accept, would not cower away.
The caretaker of the garden professes eternal gratitude
and love for this brave creature of Gods doing.
Thank you Perly sunflower.
5. A Sunflower is born
Across the sea,
I saw a garnished soil
of standing stacks alone
With arms releasing side words
them, greenish, wide, expanse
of numerous size and tone
Their centers are fertile,
producers and fragile
dusky, tiny, and life prone
The dusk is all surrounded,
by sunny shades entities
resembling of king’s throne
Some facing to the sun,
Some growing still alone
Look, notice, deeper down,
A Sunflower is born
6. To the Sunflower
by Yone Noguchi
Thou burstest from mood:
How sad we have to cling to experience!
Marvel of thy every atom burning of life,
How fully thou livest!
Didst thou ever think to turn to cold and shadow?
Passionate liver of sunlight,
Symbol of youth and pride;
Thou art a lyric of thy soaring colour;
Thy voicelessness of song is action.
What absorption of thy life’s meaning.
Wonder of thy consciousness,—
Mighty sense of thy existence!
Famous Sunflower Poems
Many famous painters and poets have been inspired by the splendor of the sunflower. The following are some of the most famous poems about sunflowers ever penned. Why not give one of these famous sunflower poems to a friend?
1. Sunflower Sutra
by Allen Ginsberg
I walked on the banks of the tincan banana dock and sat down under the huge shade of a Southern Pacific locomotive to look at the sunset over the box house hills and cry.
Jack Kerouac sat beside me on a busted rusty iron pole, companion, we thought the same thoughts of the soul, bleak and blue and sad-eyed, surrounded by the gnarled steel roots of trees of machinery.
The oily water on the river mirrored the red sky, sun sank on top of final Frisco peaks, no fish in that stream, no hermit in those mounts, just ourselves rheumy-eyed and hung-over like old bums on the riverbank, tired and wily.
Look at the Sunflower, he said, there was a dead gray shadow against the sky, big as a man, sitting dry on top of a pile of ancient sawdust—
—I rushed up enchanted—it was my first sunflower, memories of Blake—my visions—Harlem
and Hells of the Eastern rivers, bridges clanking Joes Greasy Sandwiches, dead baby carriages, black treadless tires forgotten and unretreaded, the poem of the riverbank, condoms & pots, steel knives, nothing stainless, only the dank muck and the razor-sharp artifacts passing into the past—
and the gray Sunflower poised against the sunset, crackly bleak and dusty with the smut and smog and smoke of olden locomotives in its eye—
corolla of bleary spikes pushed down and broken like a battered crown, seeds fallen out of its face, soon-to-be-toothless mouth of sunny air, sunrays obliterated on its hairy head like a dried wire spiderweb,
leaves stuck out like arms out of the stem, gestures from the sawdust root, broke pieces of plaster fallen out of the black twigs, a dead fly in its ear,
Unholy battered old thing you were, my sunflower O my soul, I loved you then!
The grime was no man’s grime but death and human locomotives,
all that dress of dust, that veil of darkened railroad skin, that smog of cheek, that eyelid of black mis’ry, that sooty hand or phallus or protuberance of artificial worse-than-dirt—industrial—modern—all that civilization spotting your crazy golden crown—
and those blear thoughts of death and dusty loveless eyes and ends and withered roots below, in the home-pile of sand and sawdust, rubber dollar bills, skin of machinery, the guts and innards of the weeping coughing car, the empty lonely tincans with their rusty tongues alack, what more could I name, the smoked ashes of some cock cigar, the cunts of wheelbarrows and the milky breasts of cars, wornout asses out of chairs & sphincters of dynamos—all these
entangled in your mummied roots—and you there standing before me in the sunset, all your glory in your form!
A perfect beauty of a sunflower! a perfect excellent lovely sunflower existence! a sweet natural eye to the new hip moon, woke up alive and excited grasping in the sunset shadow sunrise golden monthly breeze!
How many flies buzzed round you innocent of your grime, while you cursed the heavens of the railroad and your flower soul?
Poor dead flower? when did you forget you were a flower? when did you look at your skin and decide you were an impotent dirty old locomotive? the ghost of a locomotive? the specter and shade of a once powerful mad American locomotive?
You were never no locomotive, Sunflower, you were a sunflower!
And you Locomotive, you are a locomotive, forget me not!
So I grabbed up the skeleton thick sunflower and stuck it at my side like a scepter,
and deliver my sermon to my soul, and Jack’s soul too, and anyone who’ll listen,
—We’re not our skin of grime, we’re not dread bleak dusty imageless locomotives, we’re golden sunflowers inside, blessed by our own seed & hairy naked accomplishment-bodies growing into mad black formal sunflowers in the sunset, spied on by our own eyes under the shadow of the mad locomotive riverbank sunset Frisco hilly tincan evening sitdown vision.
2. Eagle of flowers!
by James Montgomery
Eagle of flowers!
I see thee stand, And on the sun’s noon-glory gaze;
With eye like his, thy lids expand,
And fringe their disk with golden rays:
Though fix’d on earth, in darkness rooted there,
Light is thy element, thy dwelling air,
Thy prospect heaven.
3. After the lilacs have gone by
by Evelyn Judy Buehler
After the lilacs have gone by,
before golden flowers bloom
we will walk through meadows
soft and blue
and feast on bread with honey
stolen from autumn bees
still drunk in love with sunflowers.
After the lilacs have gone by,
before red poppies dance,
as we wake in meadows
soft with dew
you will kiss my honeyed lips
and we will walk through springs
still drunk in love with bluebells.
After the lilacs have gone by,
before brown leaves of autumn
as we remember meadows.
by Kevin Kato
Whenever I see a sunflower,
Inevitably, I come to think
Of him whose gifted hands lovingly
Rendered vivid tongues of flaming glow
Whose eyes have long gazed on beauty’s light
Until the world grew pale and faded
Whose soul perceived yet another realm
Full of shimmering forms and hues,
And so sought release beyond the frame.
5. Sunflowers and Hope
I am the sunflower
A ray of hope
A symbol of peace
In these uncertain times
This is what we need
Some happiness and optimism
Not all the cynicism
This is within reason
It is almost the season
To see my happy face
As the sun rises
Or the sun sets
Following the suns rays
Throughout the days
Come sit for a spell
It will do you well
Put your mind and heart at ease
Feel the light breeze
Soak in the hope we get
From a field of sunflowers
6. Sunflower of life
by Liam Mcdaid
Sands blow over
touching inside deep waves
turning tides warmly glow,
softly fluttering winds touching gently
upon the shores.
An oasis of beauty
freely calling your name,
drifting a carpet mist
kissing the air sweetly
hauntingly magic echoes,
carrying music upon
cotton clouds bouncing
in each and every single
whispering silent breath gasping
one golden ritual
forever shines always,
I believe in you love,
brightening sunlight beams
in every which way,
all I ever wanted
is you babe.
Short Sunflower Poems
Sometimes, like the majestic sunflower, we just need to stand upright and push our faces to the sun during challenging times. This is what most of the short poems about sunflowers teach us. Here are some short sunflower poems for you.
1. They are misplaced
Sunflower has a smiling face,
When planted in a sunny place,
Those planted in the shade
Soon look miserable and fade.
Sad because they are misplaced.
2. A sunflower poem
by James Thomson
The lofty follower of the sun,
Sad when he sets, shuts up her yellow leaves,
Drooping all night; and when he warm returns.
Points her enamor’d bosom to his ray.
3. You are a Sunflower
by Avijeet Das
You are touching so many people’s lives.
You are a Sunflower.
You bring hope to people.
You are a Rose.
You inspire one and all in the World
4. National Flower
I am sure most of the people in Ukraine are astounded.
Uprooted from their homes, separated from their families.
We need to flood social media with sunflower photos.
She is their national flower and may help to give them hope.
I know if I was a refugee, I would appreciate seeing sunflowers.
A reminder that things will get better. A reminder of better days.
Sad to see six hundred thousand women and children uprooted
while their husbands and sons fight a maniacal tyrant bully.
5. Queen of flowers
by Ed Blair
Oh sunflower! The queen of all flowers,
No other with you can compare,
The roadside and fields are made golden
Because of your bright presence there.
Above all the weeds that surround you
You raise to the sun your bright head,
Embroidering beautiful landscapes
Your absence would leave brown and dead.
6. A Field Full of Sunflowers
by Bijay Kant Dubey
Yellow and crowned
With the violet
At the middle
Big and bulging
Cast towards the sun,
The rising sun,
The strong sun
The yellow, yellow
Violet crowned sunflowers
Rhyme Sunflower Poems
For decades, poets and writers have written various rhyme sunflower poems to depict this magnificent bloom. Here are some of the rhyming poems we chose for you.
by Peter Cullen
bringing life to that dull wall.
Reaching up towards the Sun,
flowering for everyone.
Bringing seeds and oil to harvest,
paintings from a demented soul,
the kind of one who falls the hardest,
upon life and everyone.
Nature coursing through the madness
bringing new light with the dawn,
but every star is stalked by darkness
making it shine all the more.
Until its flame is quenched by powers
A force much stronger than us all.
We’ll just sit and watch the madness,
and those Sunflowers by the wall.
2. I am sunflower
by Gurieza Macuto
Hello sun! I am sunflower that enjoys your brightness
Sway and smile everyday with gladness
Never worrying what others had mellow
Other nature’s plea for dew drops to show
God created me differently from other flower
My beauty has no fragrance like jasmine
Yet I stood tall in the hotness of struggles to gather
And I give my smile, graces anytime
I wear my yellow petals with deference, I am a garland to any one
Mark their embraces, live as remembrance of love by someone
I mellow and dances with the rain
To last, cease no hope for tomorrow’s life to gain
God is wise, smart yet kind
Created me unlikely from everyone
And give a luscious beauty that last to someone
Even I mellow color like yellow
Am still the sunflower that lives and say my “hello”.
I remember when I planted your seed so small
Wondering if you would ever grow at all
Then as sun did shine and rain did pour
You became the flower we all adore.
If your seed did drop to the ground
Squirrels collected them scampering around
Your petals so yellow, leaves of green
Even from far away you can be seen.
You are such a happy flower
You like to be seen and have great power.
Holding your head up high, looking to the light
Especially when the sun does shine so bright.
Dear sunflower, so elegant and tall
You certainly are the tallest flower of all.
So Mr. Sunflower, as you grow tall
Higher and higher, looking over the wall
Standing there, you sway in the breeze
As you love to be standing close to the trees
For you I have so much admiration
As you certainly have determination
4. History of the Sunflower
by Mae Stein
The sunflower, a fiber no less
A beaming tall flower to caress
It has its deeds with many leads
Over towering tall, not to miss
The seed of purple enhanced clothing
Made new and bright from old and loathing
Fade colors bright, brought back the light
From the sunflower seeds beholding
Other parts used for medical cures
Snake bites ointments which ever endures
Seed oil within, for the hair and skin
Beliefs before time as nature insures
God put all things that grows on this land
Healing methods by His wondrous hand
The Indian men, made potions then
Discovering things found in demand.
5. Leonine Sunflower
by Oscar Wilde
The lily’s withered chalice falls
Around its rod of dusty gold,
And from the beech-trees on the wold
The last wood-pigeon coos and calls.
The gaudy leonine sunflower
Hangs black and barren on its stalk,
And down the windy garden walk
The dead leaves scatter, – hour by hour.
Pale privet-petals white as milk
Are blown into a snowy mass:
The roses lie upon the grass
Like little shreds of crimson silk
Beautiful Sunflower Poems

by Pam Stewart
If I were a flower…
I would be a sunflower.
To always follow the sun,
Turn my back to darkness,
Stand proud, tall and straight
Even with my head full of seeds.
2. Little Sunflower
by Lovie Divine
Sing little sunflower sing,
It is the middle of spring.
Shine your face to the Son,
Your gifts are more than one.
Your mothers, an Ebony and Crimson rose.
What doesn’t matter because everyone knows.
Love was all that was meant to be,
A mother’s love to feel and see.
Though our share of sorrows, we shall all own,
Heaven is where we all belong.
While life yields her due seasons of spring,
All other seasons, just sing.
3. Bold Sunflower
by Margaretta Sackor
I wish I could be as vibrant and bold as a sunflower
Wish my petals could stretch towards the sun
in hopes of growing. I wish these pale painted
faces would stare in awh instead of disgust.
I wish I was as yellow as a sunflower
or maybe an oddly pink tone fleshed with red
I want my color to be praised not discussed
like dirt being picked out of fingers
I have come to the realization that I am a sunflower
Beautiful, bold, and magical
My brown petals stretch out from limb to limb
meeting at my bud with a smile so dazzling
and eyes small but fill with love and hope.
I am a sunflower in the boldest of ways possible
like coffee with no sugar no cream. I am loved like Jupiter
loves Juno, My brightness is appreciated like a full moon
at 12 midnight. I could fill a whole field with my petals
just for your grazing but you don’t deserve it.
I am a sunflower. What are you?
4. Fields of Sunflower
by Michael Bell
Distant the hills in its quiet domain,
Overlooking the field of sunflower plains.
Pollinating bees in a solemn hum.
To rhythm the cluck of the windmill pump.
A multiple moment with you to share,
No other place of paradise compared
Reflection your eyes, in a sea of colour,
Whilst we pledge our love to each other.
Just as you melt in the frame of my arms,
I peck your lips with the art of a bird
Emotions then flow from beauty within
Soft whisper of words as new love begin
5. Sunflowers in My Room
by Cass Casually
White walls now all is bright
Hanging around are fairy lights
The glowing reflections that I see
Calms the anxieties the day has brought me
Yellow, brown and standing tall
Such beauty laid against my walls
Sunny days or gloomy weather
Sunflowers make everything so much better
Sunflower Poems about Love
Sunflower is frequently used as a representation of optimism, pleasure, and love. A sunflower would never gaze straight away from the sun, much as we do not wish to look away from our loved ones.
And many poets have written several poems about sunflowers and love.Here are some of those romantic sunflower love poems for you to enjoy.
1. O Sunflower, with the sun
by Sara Jewett
The warm sun kissed the earth
To consecrate thy birth,
And from his close embrace
Thy radiant face
Sprang into sight,
A blossoming delight.
Through the long summer days
Thy lover’s burning rays
Shone hot upon thy heart.
Thy life was part
Of his desire,
Thou passion-flower of fire!
And, turning toward his love,
Lifting thy head above
The earth that nurtured thee,
And stately mien
Proclaims thee sun-crowned queen.
On earth, thy gorgeous bloom
Bears record of thy tomb,
And to transcendent light
Thy soul takes flight
Till thou art one,
O sunflower, with the sun!
2. As the Sunflower..
It is not while beauty and youth are thine own,
And thy cheeks unprofaned by a tear,
That the fervor and faith of a soul may be known,
To which time will but make thee more dear!
Oh the heart that has truly loved never forgets,
But as truly loves on to the close,
As the sunflower turns to her god when he sets
The same look which she turned when he rose!
3. Bloom like a sunflower
by Poet Shi
I love you
and that will
we’ll age, not
From the moment
that I’ve held you
in my arms…
I’ve treasured you,
I’ve loved you.
What we share
could never die,
I will love you all
The tenderness of
your kiss, blooms
like a sunflower in
You’re my only love.
I wanna grow old
with you, spend
an eternity making
love to you.
Be your quiet storm,
the one that’ll keep
I wanna breathe you,
be your night and day.
Our love will remain,
even in the afterlife…
A continued romance
that’ll last throughout
4. Love in the morning
by Wendy Rycroft
Love comes early in the morning
we watch the sun rise
a light yellow yolk
walking with red legs across the sky…
Hurrying from her car
we are just two lovers
locking hands in excitement
walking upon flower deep fields…
Her dress indigo with a sunflower
an art nouveau flower
song birds in the Magnolia
an ocean breeze fills our sails…
We had been up all night
waiting for the moon
to kiss the morning star
and the sun to rise like an Emperor..
Morning sky fills with saffron
orange, crimson with the blaze of Venus
reminding us of the absolute and the infinite
and the exaltation of new love..
by Ms Ann Thrope
The Sunflower is awfully bigheaded
For being so tall & gangly
With fiery blooms, rough around the edges
He’s quite a sight to see annually
He looks down upon all the other flowers
With his head so high in the sky
This makes the other flowers jealous
But they fail to realize the sunflower lives a lie
Because the problem with the sunflower
Is that he turns his back on the sun
Creating the misconception
That he does not need anyone
But through the circadian rhythm
His leaves continuously change
Eluding the very revelation
That the sunflower causes his own pain
So as the sun begins to set
The sunflower realizes what he’s done
He faces the darkness with much regret
Realizing he cannot live without the sun
6. Prayer for a Profusion of Sunflowers
by Amy Lowell
With my turkey-bone whistle
I am calling the birds
To sing upon the sunflowers.
For when the clouds hear them singing
They will come quickly,
And rain will fall upon our fields.
Friendship and Sunflower Poems
Let us now go through some of the poems about flowers and friendship. Make an effort to reflect the vibrancy of the yellow flowers in your manner and how you treat your friends. Also, remember to stand tall, just like the sunflower. Don’t be hesitant to show the world what makes you distinct and exceptional.
1. Sunflower Chains and Friendship
As children, we tied sunflowers around our fingers
Connecting our souls and pinkies
Saying we would be together forever.
We would dance and sing and fall to the floor
A bouquet of flowers around us
And then you grew up
You said I was lame
You said I was fat.
You said I was stupid
And you left
The sunflower chain still wrapped around our fingers
And then I met you
We would sing and shout and walk and run
We would hang out and tell secrets
And then you told me to move on
And I asked how?
How can i “move on”
When every song reminds me of you
How can I move on in a world full of darkness?
And I moved on. Leaving pieces of me behind
And then I met you
You were laughter and yellow and sunshine
And you would brighten up even the darkest day
And I moved on. Leaving pieces of me behind
And then I met you
You were laughter and yellow and sunshine
And you would brighten up even the darkest day
Until you didn’t
Until I realized your sunshine was merely a lantern
Pretending to be light
Your laughter was mocking
And your bright colors were fake
And I told you to move on
And I told myself it was time to leave.
2. Sunflower Friends
Blossoms of enthralling shiny yellow, which
flourish around mid-summer. Resiliently,
its infinite beauty spreads special joy
throughout endless fields until early fall.
With their rounded shape, which reminds
us of the sun, the star which movement
crosses the sky from east to west, tirelessly,
day after day, without losing its plenitude.
Over life, one’s luck is to pass by people
who are as dazzle as sunflowers, those able
to bring memorable moments to our lives.
People who inspire us with their bright smiles.
As time goes by, the affection strengthens.
Little by little, each day it grows, and like the ripe
sunflowers filled with seeds, friends mature
their emotions while sowing their own seeds.
Even the shadows can’t hinder the sunflowers’ glow
as they open no matter what. Friends should keep
their spirits unbolted like flowers in the sun. Friendship,
based on love and trust, is implausible to be beaten.
3. Sunflower Lover
by Charlie Six
When the sun comes out, the sunflowers are awake
The cotton candy skies are colored with ocean blue
The birds start to sing their lyrics
The bats retreat to their caves
The wind whispers to everyone
The people start greeting each other
The boy is falling in love
The girl starts to have it as well
The old man plays his guitar
The other man sings to its fine tune
The shy guy enjoys his jazz music in his room
The mediocre girl is hanging out with her friends
But that’s about it
That’s all I can see with my eyes
People having their good morning
Especially those who smell the sunflowers first
Those sunflower lovers
They dreamt it all
4. Sun is my best friend
by Jan Allison
I sprouted from a small seed planted firmly in the ground
With refreshing drinks of water my size it can confound!
My long legs must be supported, or I could stoop and bend
I love being out of doors where the sun is my best friend!
I’m a great sun worshipper and my face follows the sun
I tower over small plants, being tall is so much fun
I tan my face on sunny days; my seeds turn golden brown
Small children just look up at me, and hope my seeds drop down!
5. Behind the Sunflowers
by Charles M Moore
While sitting one day in my garden
writing things I’d like to say
a little girl of five or six
came asking if I’d like to play
The little girl tugged at my sleeve
and beckoned me to go her way
her blue eyes pleading, please forgive me
I just need some company
‘My name is Sarah’, ‘what is yours’?
‘this is where I used to stay’
‘you remind me of my father
just before he went away’
She looked neglected in a frocked dress
from a style of yesterday
running barefoot, giggling, laughing
wishing me to come and play
Bewildered I stood watching, waiting
then she threw a ball my way
I stumbled forward trying to catch
this tied up ball of rags and hay
We played pass and then she asked
if she could have some lemonade
I gave my glass and on the grass
we compared daisy chains we made
She placed her garland round my neck
I did the same and then she said
you’re such a friend, can I come back
and play with you another day
I said of course as she stood up
she kissed my head and ran away
into some sunflowers I had planted
by the pond one summer’s day
Now and then when in the garden
I hear her giggle as she plays
behind the sunflowers near the pond
that gently sway on summer days.
Sunflower Poems for Her
This beautiful and cheerful-looking yellow flower is one of the greatest flowers to give to someone who needs a pleasant pick-me-up. Give your girlfriend or wife a bouquet of sunflowers along with one of the sunflower love poems for her to brighten their day.
1. I glow as a sunflower
She gave me courage constantly
supported me leaning on my side proudly
made me shine like the morning sun
I glow as a sunflower my heart filled with fun
Dum spiro, Spero to mean it all with positive
for my perception is different, I have another perspective
compos mentis tells me about her
wild thoughts and the dazzling personality pattern
for luck is given from up above named as destiny
whatever it is named after it is topsy-turvy
out worldly blessed with patience and capability to understand
whenever my thoughts wander i find myself in the heart of the wood
seesaw, hide and seek, pendulum swinging mood
audacity, melody to my pains cure
frenzy feelings forever for her
for she is free, clear, and pure as the sky
messing around that i really don’t dare
wisdom like the owl, safe and sound when she fly
fly in the heart and settle there for its all the place she can own
the kingdom is hers, the princess eternity my consciousness is her crown.
2. Sunflower gleaming
Ah, behold the beauty
Before your golden eyes
Holding you in her trace
As bright as the sun
Sunrise glowing like her beautiful eyes
Gracing with the yellow petals dripping
As she ascend
Sunflowers gleaming in her paradise
Waiting at the gates to be allowed
Into her presence, sedated forever
In her palm, carefree delights
3. She is like a sunflower
Just like the rain,
I keep on falling for her
Over and over again.
Beauty with brains,
She sweeps me off my feet
Just like a hurricane.
I think am going insane
I keep on losing myself in her eyes,
Feels like am high on cocaine.
I can’t quite explain
But her smile is worth more than
A bottle of champaign.
Am not trying to entertain
But without her I kinda feel like
A Lion without its mane
Yeah… that’s right
am dying from loneliness in the den.
So I guess I gotta keep my mind sane
Even though she say’s that “I like to complain.”
Truth is.. all these negative talks need
To to be tossed in the drain
But my broken thoughts keep on acting like a love train.
that’s the type of relationship
I want to maintain,
So why should I switch lanes
When I know my love for her won’t be invane?
Just like Bruce Wayne
I want to be the hero in her life
By driving away her pain.
She’s like a sunflower growing in the rocky terrain
So I want to take her to a different place
To another domain.
Cause when it comes to matters of the heart
I will wage war, I will fight for her,
I will be her Saddam Hussein.
4. She was like a sunflower
She was like a sunflower,
In a garden full of roses.
Yet she professed a delightful power,
Among that beauty, fragrance and poses.
She sought her life from the sun too bright,
The fear of blazing, yet finessing her fright.
And when clouds struck by,
She found her silvers through the black;
Passing through the storms,
Satiating her lack.
She stood tall, Even after a fall;
Dreaming to bloom, better than the best;
And to shine brighter than the rest.
So when you’ll think about the beauty of those roses,
She’ll strive for the sunflower.
Seeking some light for her life,
Just to shine a little brighter!
5. My Sunflower
Tall, Yellow and Bright,
She stands up with all her might.
Enduring all pain, through the dark,
Yet every morning, she’s up with a smile..
She’s my biggest supporter,
She’s my sunflower, and
I love her the most.
6. The Sunflower of My Life
by KO Lôw
Everything about you screams princess
From the way you talk,
the way you walk
And the way you are
Just a piece of me that I can’t have
You so are perfect to me,
beautiful and gracious
You are so valuable,
priceless you can say.
You are so much like my heart
I can feel you
but I can never touch you
You are the smiles I can’t have
The beautiful moments I can’t enjoy
The joy I can’t feel but see.
You are so near to me
and yet so far away
I want you to know that I cherish you dearly
And hope my words
can convey my feelings clearly.
Here is my gift to you
My heart and my love
All for you
You are the sunflower of my life
And your smile is the petals of dawn
Sending glows of love to my being.
Sunflower Poems in English
Make your life like a sunflower. When circumstances are bad, remember to retain your emphasis on the positives, just as the sunflower keeps its face directed toward the sun. This is the lesson that most of the sunflower poems in English teach us. Here are some poems on flower in English.
1. Stop growing
by Hilda Conkling
Sun-flowers, stop growing!
If you touch the sky where those clouds are passing
Like tufts of dandelion gone to seed,
The sky will put you out!
You know it is blue like the sea . . .
Maybe it is wet, too!
Your gold faces will be gone forever
If you brush against that blue
Ever so softly!
2. My Sunflower
by William Blake
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!
by Tim Firth
Which makes it ironic my favorite flower
isn’t even indigenous to the British Isles,
let alone Yorkshire. I don’t think there’s
anything on this planet that more trumpets
life that the sunflower. For me, that’s
because of the reason behind its name. Not
because it looks like the sun but because it
follows the sun. During the course of the
day, the head tracks the journey of the sun
across the sky. A satellite dish for
sunshine. Wherever light is, no matter
how weak, these flowers will find it. And
that’s such an admirable thing. And
such a lesson in life.
4. Yellow Sunflower
by Wendy Rycroft
Happily, she sways,
Seeking gods praise,
Warmth from his blaze,
Inferno of heat,
Golden rays shine,
Her energy and strength,
Winning her prize,
Huge petals, bathe
Celebrating her love,
Searching for light
Cheerful and bright
What a beautiful sight
Standing so tall,
Rejoicing choir joins in,
I have a soft spot for sunflowers and selflove.
Okay now and then I’ll fall inloved with a dove.
I do wish I had a sunflowers looks.
So yellow and bright like coloring books.
“Selflove”, Well I love others more than myself.
I’m always lending a hand, tossing my needs aside.
If only I was a flower seeking the sun.
I’ll wiggle my petals off, setting them free, Go! Run!.
I guess I’m stuck as a human being.
I wish I was a flower, No more being emotional and no more seeing.
All this pain around me, what’s my home becoming.
Mindsets are blocked, They need plumbing.
I’m stuck as a goofy human, left behind only to imagine.
I wanted to get shot out of a huge cannon.
Then perhaps I’ll open my eyes, the heavy thinking just disappears.
Out of my mind, Up in the air, then lost into the atmosphere.
For thou shall remain in “reality, it’s called life”.
Somebody pass the buthers knife.
Cravings for cutting, maybe explore my brain.
Looking so deep that it made me mentally insane.
My wrists are bleeding, Blades in my hand.
The Cuts are pretty and red, I’m Lost in Neverland.
Legs shaking and I’m loosing all eyesight.
Time to be a Sunflower, I’ll be dead, but I’ll be bright….
by Kameron Stout
the bear snoozing
A Sunflower blooming
The Sun is blinding
Mating calls for fighting
a sunflower glooming
as a sunflower tries to
a sunflower dies too
The snowflakes fall
a Sunflower grows tall
the dens are built
The bear snoozing
A Sunflower glooming
