The Kansas state song is “Home On The Range” and the state tree is the cottonwood; but much better than those is the Kansas state flower…
The Wild Native Sunflower.
GARDEN OF SUNFLOWERS
A garden of Sunflower beckoned to me – Come join us, my lady, and joyous you’ll be!
We’re large ones and small ones, some dainty and fair, And even some delicate to wear in your hair.
We follow the sun, swaying slowly without a care, We have a new dance that with you we will share.
Gently hold onto our leaves, allow us to lead the way, To our Sunflower two-step, dancing throughout the day.
I couldn’t resist them, so dandy a sight! So off I did go in my Sunflower flight.
What a glorious time, right up til twilight, And then I had to bid my Sunflowers good-night.
So happy were we, a long day filled with fun, Upon leaving I kissed them, each and every one.
So tender the moment, as I turned to leave. With eyes brimmed with tears, could I truly believe?
OH! It was so true!! I then knew it to be!!! I had to smile, ’cause they were all winking at me!!!!
