"Zonnebloemenzee." De Horst, Holland.

"Zonnebloemen draaien
met de zon mee
van vroeg tot laat
met de zon mee
tot hij ondergaat

's nachts
draaien zonnebloemen
langzaam
niet vlug
's nachts
draaien zonnebloemen
weer zachtjes terug

tot de zon komt
met de zon mee
zonnebloemen zee".

(Text: Hans en Monique Hagen.)

("Sunflowers sea."

"Sunflowers turn
along with the Sun
from early morning
til late in the evening they
follow the Sun till he sets.

At night,
the Sunflowers turn
slowly
without any rush.
At night,
the  Sunflowers turn
slowly back again.

Til the Sun comes up
they follow the Sun,
Sunflowers sea.")

I just had to think of this lovely little poem from the
book:


When we saw this view from our shelter this vacation.
