Tiny tri-tone

"So gradual in those summers was the going

of the age it seemed that the long days setting out

when the stars faded over the mountains were not

leaving us ..."

W.S. Merwin: The Speed of Light.

DeKalb County, Georgia.

▶ Might this be very small, NON-alpine eyebright (Euphrasia)?
