Spotlight Poetry – Ah! Sunflower – A poem by William Blake

Ah! Sunflower by William Blake

Ah Sun-flower! weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the Sun:

Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the travellers 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.
