I love sunflowers



A garden of Sunflower beckoned to me -
Come join us, my lady, and joyous you'll be!

We're large ones and small ones, some dainty and fair,
And even some delicate to wear in your hair.

We follow the sun, swaying slowly without a care,
We have a new dance that with you we will share.

Gently hold onto our leaves, allow us to lead the way,
To our Sunflower two-step, dancing throughout the day.

I couldn't resist them, so dandy a sight!
So off I did go in my Sunflower flight.

What a glorious time, right up til twilight,
And then I had to bid my Sunflowers good-night.

So happy were we, a long day filled with fun,
Upon leaving I kissed them, each and every one.

So tender the moment, as I turned to leave.
With eyes brimmed with tears, could I truly believe?

OH! It was so true!! I then knew it to be!!!
I had to smile, 'cause they were all winking at me!!!!

I really liked this poem, Patty. And the sunflowers too. I got lots of pictures of sunflowers you can use anytime you want them.

Dear Patty ~~ The poem and the sunflowers were very nice. Thank you for the Halloween cards and your kind comments about my friend's funeral. It was so sad, but beautiful too,just as Anne deserved.
I am feeling better, but still have pain. So am taking things easily to
try to get more strength. I can just see you and me sitting on booster
seats seeing as we have shrunk.
Take care, dear friend,Love,Merle.
