Inspired by a verse from the poem Bring me the Sunflower by Italian poet Eugenio Montale.
So bring me the plant that takes you right
where the blond hazes shimmering rise
and life fumes to air as spirit does;
bring me the sunflower crazy with the light.
(translated from Italian by George Kay)
Don’t you just love that CRAZY WITH LIGHT. The sunflower hangs in place of the Iris as it was time for repair and change. On the fence of PS72 on the corner of E104th & Lex.
