Two Sunflowers Move in the Yellow Room


Two Cut Sunflowers, Vincent Van Gogh, 1887

 
 

“Ah, William, we’re weary of weather,”

said the sunflowers, shining with dew.

“Our traveling habits have tired us.

Can you give us a room with a view?”

They arranged themselves at the window

and counted the steps of the sun,

and they both took root in the carpet

where the topaz tortoises run.

William Blake
