Having a hard time understanding this poem

Ah Sunflower by William Blake

Ah Sunflower, weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the sun;
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller's journey is done;

Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale virgin shrouded in snow,
Arise from their graves, and aspire
Where my Sunflower wishes to go!

Re: Having a hard time understanding this poem

Read some good analysis here.. LINK

Thank you for sharing this poem.. the more poems I read such poems by Wordsworth, Shakespeare, Keats, etc. I can't stop to think how poets are really philosophers who have chosen a way of conveying their emotions/feelings using this beautiful medium.. very apt for sharing thoughts so deep and intense.

For such poems, filled with philosophy, I think a new word should be coined.. poems are otherwise mostly just rhyme and words with simplistic meaning.
