Ah!  Sun-flower!

by William Blake


Ah Sun-flower!  weary of time,

Who countest the steps of the Sun:

Seeking after that sweet golden clime

Where the travelers 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.
