Only to bloom again…

Your flower of peace is pressed to the ground, trodden under foot by
humanity’s boot
Through the winter’s cruel plight
your seed is preserved
no matter how bruised and abused you have been
So sweetly sleep until once more you bloom
and with a smile of love you will have forgiven

The sunflower is Ukraine’s
symbol of peace.
