The Sunflower

                                            S outh of the garden
                                            U nder the yellow orbed sun,
                                            N uggets of gold glitter
                                            F or the joy of everyone.
                                            L eaves of green are staggered
                                            O ver slender seven foot stalks,
                                            W aving at all visitors,
                                            E ncouraging nature walks.
                                            R usty browns and lemon yellows
                                            S teal our hearts away.
