According to the author, Bunny Hansen, the following was inspired by the wearing of a sunflower costume “hat” by Susan Schmidlin and Lorelle VanFossen during the meeting.
Today I saw a golden array,
A yellow wreath, an ocher garland
Surrounding a brown berry face.
It is of no matter and little importance
If its rays are brilliant, bold sunflowers
Or luscious, life giving, ripe bananas.
Today I saw generosity’s tiara and comfort’s crown.
