Subject(s): Sierra Nevada Mountains


Orchid-like, gold mimulus cling
To blackened granite above the spring.

Skyline mountain, a pyramid block,
Marked like an Indian picture rock.

Red and yellow columbines
Flame beneath the sugar-pines.

Green-white aspens, bended bows,
Curved by heavy winter snows.

Powder-sweet the flowers grow
Between the timber and the snow.

Polished, blue gentians, lapidescent,
Startle Sierra meadows, quiescent.

Finally wind will have its way
With crystal dust and powdered clay.
