Sunflower Sonnet

By Lily Umbel, age 15, Pennsylvania


A breath of golden summer
Took me by surprise
Now, forever chained to be your lover
An enjoyable demise
My attention caught by your protruding
Though dull the world may be
You stood there, tall and exhilarating
Convicted, I knew you were for me
Your petals- amber rays of sunshine
Crinkle your leaves in shame
I fell for the yellow, a favorite of mine
Forget the flower by any other name
How could any artist resist
But paint these flowers that loudly exist
