BORDER HILLS, by LEXIE DEAN ROBERTSON Poet's Biography
First Line: Mosaic of topaz, emerald, and mauve
Last Line: And as old.
Subject(s): Mountains; Hills; Downs (Great Britain)
MOSAIC of topaz, emerald, and mauve
Lifting to heart-breaking blue,
Across the desert they drift with the sands,
As old as the earth....
And as new.
Out of the grey-brown dust they rise,
Patterned in pastels and gold,
Curving soft beauty to meet the sky,
As young as the dawns....
And as old.
