> Dear Miltonists,
> This is a much broader 17th century poetry question posed to me by a
> colleague:  I was hoping that individual members of the Milton list would be
> willing to consider it.  My colleague recalls two 17th century poems on
> sunflowers, but can't seem to find them.  He describes the poems as follows:
> "The gist of it was that like the sunflower that follows the sun across the
> sky, our souls hunger for heaven."  I was able to find two later examples,
> but they are rather obscure.
> 
> Does this ring a bell for anyone?  Off-list responses would be greatly
> appreciated!

> Best,  Shannon Miller
