The Sunflower

Sometimes life isn't very bright, but the sun knows when the time is right In springtime something grows in the quiet of the night Nurtured below ground, soon it will be in your sight The warmth of the year provides it to shine bright It is for all living things to watch and enjoy The bees and butterflies help us to understand the story Their work is of great importance to show not all is melancholy It is a story of life and nature, and a beautiful endless journey The sunflower sways in the gentle breeze in a brilliant dance It has grown from a seed, and a little luck and chance The days are long, but soon autumn will advance Winter has come, the sunflower lies dormant, but I see it return in a summers glance
