Sunflower

it is addressed thusly:
An ode.
it reads:
I would that you sleep or you dream
And if dream, dream true, dream true
If you dream of the ocean blue
And of a sky of pink and cream
Of a morning sky - the sun blazing red
Do you dream of yourself instead
What is in you, O dreamer of light
Electric, a body suffused
Spread thin, gathered in, then loosed
Of a passionate, transient might
Twilight comes; the sun's not to be seen
By chance had you glanced what it'd been
Or did you see just the earth and the sea
Your navel, Narcissus, and hear
The vague echo of one yet held dear
O Sunflower! Then all visions flee
Be encoded, be bottled, be meme
I would that you sleep or you dream.
