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

       by Mers

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.

4. Sunflower

       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

       by Anonymous

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

deeply dazzling

freely calling your name,

drifting a carpet mist

kissing the air sweetly

silver shadows

hauntingly magic echoes,

carrying music upon

cotton clouds bouncing

in each and every single

whispering silent breath gasping

Breathing upon

one golden ritual

forever shines always,

I believe in you love,

a sunflower

made beautifully,

brightening sunlight beams

in every which way,

adoring light

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

       by Anonymous

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

       by Anonymous

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

The sunflower,

The sunflower

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. ‎

1. Sunflowers

       by Peter Cullen

Sunflowers,

growing tall,

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”.

3. Sunflowers

       by Doreen

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

1. Sunflower

       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

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,

Thy majesty

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..

       by Anonymous

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

never change.

Even though

we’ll age, not

our love.

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

my life.

The tenderness of

your kiss, blooms

like a sunflower in

the sun.

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

you warm.

I wanna breathe you,

be your night and day.

Our love will remain,

even in the afterlife…

A continued romance

that’ll last throughout

time.

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..

5. Sunflower

       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

Send sunflowers!

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.

Send sunflowers!

1. Sunflower Chains and Friendship

       by Anonymous

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

       by Luciana-de-Lemos

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.

1. I glow as a sunflower

       by Anonymous

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

       by Anonymous

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

       by Frank

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.

Unbreakable chain!

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

       by Anonymous

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

       by Anonymous

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,

my backbone.

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

Nobody else

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!

3. Sunflower

       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,

Reaches high,

Winning her prize,

Yellow sunflower,

Huge petals, bathe

Celebrating her love,

Searching for light

Lifting spirits,

Cheerful and bright

What a beautiful sight

Standing so tall,

Rejoicing choir joins in,

Worship begins.

5. Sunflower

       by Leverno

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….

6. Sunflower

       by Kameron Stout

Snow falling

the bear snoozing

sunflowers stalling

A Sunflower blooming

The Sun is blinding

Sunflowers blooming

Mating calls for fighting

a sunflower glooming

Perennials rebloom

as a sunflower tries to

Sunflowers rebloom

a sunflower dies too

The snowflakes fall

a Sunflower grows tall

sunflowers wilt

the dens are built

Snow falling

The bear snoozing

sunflowers stalling

A Sunflower glooming
