The day I found a sunflower
it was pretty and yellow
it was cool and he is going to be my fellow
it was fun having him in my house
but a few days later he was acting weird
he was the color brown
like he was from a town!
He was crumbled and his petals were falling off
then I remembered they need water!
But now I know how to take care of a sunflower.
