So bright and yellow like the summer sun,
Smiling petal-faces on every single one
Atop green stems strong and straight,
they reach up towards heaven's golden gate
Let's take a lesson from this lovely bloom,
as the sight of it chases away any gloom
and gives us a new outlook and a very good reason,
to celebrate the rebirth of this glorious season!
