Blake's Sunflower

Elizabeth Smart

 
1

Why did Blake say 
'Sunflower weary of time'? 
Every time I see them 
they seem to say 
Now! with a crash 
of cymbals!
Very pleased 
and positive 
and absolutely delighting 
in their own round brightness.

2
Sorry, Blake!
Now I see what you mean. 
Storms and frost have battered 
their bright delight 
and though they are still upright 
nothing could say dejection 
more than their weary 
disillusioned
hanging heads.
