I see you there in glory shining bright, 
Following the sun and it's path of light.
Standing tall above all others in the field,
You grow, conquer, and do not yield.

The little birds take great delight
In playing round you, from day to night.
With your petals of yellow and leaves of green
How very easily you are seen.

But there is more to you than first sight,
More than beauty and grander delight.
Every beautiful aspect that appears,
Gives praise to the Father dear.

He made you a part of creation,
And you praise Him in glorious celebration!
The beauty that within you is expressed,
Gives testimony to his greatness.

Sunflower, how I long to be like you!
Glorifying God in all I do.
Following the Son and His path of light,
To worship Him in His glory shining bright.

I can learn from you, my friend, 
With every breath, praise to God, I might send.
With all of His creation telling the story, 
Might I, with you, proclaim His glory.

wat een mooi gedicht! Ik krijg er een brok van in mn keel....
Dat we allemaal in ons leven maar een mooie zonnebloem mogen zijn....een korte of een lange...
Trouwens lieve Rapp: wanneer komt er een nederlands gedicht...??...of is het moeilijk om je in het nederlands poetisch uit te drukken....?
