Gray sage against gray sand --
Loping, long-eared rabbits --
Bones bleaching in the desert sun.
Lizards darting from a rock,
Purple haze over all stretching on
To distant purple peaks.

Creeping over the hills
The mist comes stealing in.
Trailing whiteness, filmy daintiness.
Leaving lonely shadows on the hills
Black with the living sun
Saying farewell behind.
