Sunflower Morn

by Richard Splett

Lift your head to greet the dawn

Cast your gaze o’er moor and lawn

Greet the glow of morning’s light

Speed the birds upon their flight!

Gone be terrors of the night

Gone the whimpers and gone the fright.

Forget those tears of loss and pain

Await the gift of summer’s rain.

God’s blessings may surprise us yet

For He will see our needs are met

Our need for love; our need for breath

Our need to suffer and be released in death.
