Volunteer Sunflower at End of June

By | July 2, 2011

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;

Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,
Arise from their graves, and aspire
Where my Sunflower wishes to go!
— William Blake

Set to music back in the sixties by The Fugs, on their eponymously titled The Fugs First Album.
