WHY should I make shoddy verse,
When Autumn prints, for all the world to read,
Poems like these?

1.

A swaggering line of sumacs
Flaunting scarlet
Against the dusky curve of distant hills.

2.

A pearl grey twilight
Lustrous with amethyst and sapphire
Before a radiant dark.

3.

That hushed and opal hour at the dawn
When all the little grasses hold their breath
To hear the silver whisper of the frost.
