C.N. Douglas, comp.  Forty Thousand Quotations: Prose and Poetical.  1917.
 
Sunflower
 
  Restless sunflower; cease to move.
Calderon.    
  1
  And the yellow sunflower by the brook, in autumn beauty stood.
Bryant.    
  2
        Sunflowers by the sides of brooks,
Turn’d to the sun.
Moore.    
  3
        And here the sunflower of the spring
Burns bright in morning’s beam.
Ebenezer Elliott.    
  4
        As the sunflower turns on her god when he sets,
The same look which she turn’d when he rose.
Moore.    
  5
              The lofty follower of the sun,
Sad when he sets, shuts up her yellow leaves,
Drooping all night; and when he warm returns,
Points her enamor’d bosom to his ray.
Thomson.    
  6
        With zealous step he climbs the upland lawn,
And bows in homage to the rising dawn;
Imbibes with eagle eye the golden ray,
And watches, as it moves, the orb of day.
Erasmus Darwin.    
  7
        Ah, sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the sun,
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller’s journey is done.
William Blake.    
  8
        Eagle of flowers! I see thee stand,
And on the sun’s noon-glory gaze;
With eye like his, thy lids expand,
And fringe their disk with golden rays;
Though fixed on earth, in darkness rooted there,
Light is thy element, thy dwelling air,
Thy prospect heaven.
James Montgomery.
