WHY should I make shoddy verse,
When Autumn prints, for all the world to read,
Poems like these?
A swaggering line of sumacs
Against the dusky curve of distant hills.
A pearl grey twilight
Lustrous with amethyst and sapphire
Before a radiant dark.
That hushed and opal hour at the dawn
When all the little grasses hold their breath
To hear the silver whisper of the frost.
