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 : Ah! Sunflower (1757-1827) P. 1793

Sunflower is my favourite... Why did Vincent Van Gogh say about cutting of his own ear?
