Maiden in saffron gown;
youthful yarrow and dreamer's thistledown.
Horizon lightly dappled with orange and blue,
ultramarine images quietly drawn.
Morning garnished with an elysian hue
parting the misty veils of dawn.
Springtide serenade of midday carillon.
May Queen in goldenrod groves;
youthful yarrow and lady-mantle rows.
Luster of lunaria bloom
over the violet shaded plain.
Village spires cloaked in moon,
eyes aswim in visions of rain.
Lambent of the vine-woven loom,
yellow dust drapes the river vein.
Lillywhite billows of wavering nimbus
atop a mountain's glacial garland.
Diamond slopes cascade into the valley,
yonder voice calls for a summit.
Lilac grows near the border of glen and glade
upon the threshold of day.
Marigold mane of blossoming blane;
primrose and tulip along a cobblestone lane.
Sketches of twilight, scribbles of prose.
