Allergic Sunflower

I saw a sunflower
allergic to the sun
that painted it in red,
as soon the day begun.

Grandpa called the doctor,
who thought a lot and said:
"This problem is too rare,
protect the flower's head."

We bought a fancy hat,
but took it off at night,
to see the flower swing
below the first moonlight.
