Sunflowers of Spain

Sister Laurentia Carroll OP

Flowers of sun. Of Spain
Rooted deep.
Ochre red, the soil

Head, raised high
Face the source
Of energy, growth, toil.
Tall, erect you stand
Fearless, in the face of foe.

Fruit filled heart
Reflecting wisdom, patience

Birth of seed
To nurture others
In their need.

Flowers of sun,
Petals, rays of gold.

Bold landmarks
Pointing outward and beyond
The space
From which their birth began.

Black and white
The seed, nurtured
In the soil of Spain.

Fed with promise
Hope and struggle
For the soul
To form anew.

Go teach-
To praise
To bless
To preach!
