RED RIVER EVENING, by            
First Line: Midge millions in a thousand galaxies hang like dust along the highways
Last Line: And a yellow moon looks slantingly down from sagittarius.
Subject(s): Stars


Midge millions in a thousand galaxies hang like dust along the highways.
A man casts a far shadow over the wheatfield.
In the skytrack magenta clouds move slowly eastward ...
Between a square mile of wheat and a section of cool, damp sweet clover,
A man watches white smoke rising from a strawpile.

The reddened west turns to soft salmon --
Then darkness:
Arcturus, Spica, Vega and Deneb mark the heavens.

The straw fire glows like a volcano --
And a yellow moon looks slantingly down from Sagittarius.
