K. McGarrigle, A. McGarrigle/Garden Court Music ASCAP

Ah, sunflower! weary of time,
Who counteth 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
