Ah! Sun-Flower

William Blake (1757–1827)
 
AH 1 Sunflower weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the Sun;
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller’s journey is done:
 
Where the Youth pined away with desire        5
And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow
Arise from their graves, and aspire
Where my Sunflower wishes to go!
 
Note 1. Blake. ‘Songs of Experience’, engraved 1794. [back]
