Ah! Sun-Flower

William Blake

Ah Sun-flower! 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 Sun-flower wishes to go.

-from Songs of Experience

It is characteristic of the Songs of Experience to saturate a natural creature with human emotions and to translate all such creatures into symbols of human desire.
