CONQUEST (DEDICATED TO F. W.), by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Hard, chilly colors
Last Line: Into the overpowering white!
Subject(s): Sun; Sky

Hard, chilly colors:
straw-grey, frost-grey
the grey of frozen ground:
and you, O Sun,
close above the horizon!
It is I holds you --
half against the sky
half against a black tree trunk
icily resplendent!

Lie there, blue city, mine at last --
rimming the banked blue-grey
and rise, indescribable smoky-yellow
into the overpowering white!
