Benevolent Beauty

 rhyming sonnet 

Spring is coming chased by summer's temper.
My favorite flower thrives in heat, well-known.
The sunflower - symbol of sacrifice
for the winter’s harshness, she will atone.

Sturdy perennial– roots go down deep
turning her face to the sun when full blown. 
Extra fine feature of each prime flower head 
is infinite, edible seeds - homegrown . 

Remember the Dutchman, Vincent Van Gogh
painted his favorites oft overblown.
Little known facts - national bloom of Ukraine,
Kansas’ state blossom with smell all her own,  

Sunflower - symbol of sacrifice shown
salvage some of her seeds to be resown.
