      Solar

      Suspended lion face
      Spilling at the centre
      Of an unfurnished sky
      How still you stand,
      And how unaided
      Single stalkless flower
      You pour unrecompensed.

      The eye sees you
      Simplified by distance
      Into an origin,
      Your petalled head of flames
      Continuously exploding.
      Heat is the echo of your
      Gold.

      Coined there among
      Lonely horizontals
      You exist openly.
      Our needs hourly
      Climb and return like angels.
      Unclosing like a hand,
      You give for ever.

      - Philip Larkin
