The Sunflowers by Mary Oliver

“The flowers of this field fulfill their lives in the abundance of their beauty. It is the pleasure of the flowers to give more than simple need requires. They adorn the earth and perfume the air, and they clearly say without the gift of speech that life is good and sweet, and though sometimes tangled in thorns, it is crowned with loveliness.” – Old Turtle, Questions of the Heart.
