The Sunflower
Grandson – school poem

Teacher gave me a seed,
Which I planted in a pot,
I thought it was a weed,
But it grew such a lot.

It grew so very tall,
And so high it went,
That over the wall,
Its golden head bent.

So proudly in sun,
And dripping in shower,
It gives us great fun,
This lovely sunflower.
