Autumn Gilt

"The late September sunshine

Lime green on the linden leaves

Burns bronze on the slated roof-tops,

Yellow on the farmer's last sheaves.

 

It flares flame-like on the fire hydrant,

Is ebony on the blackbird's wings,

Blue beryl on the face of the ocean,

Glints gold on the bride's wedding ring.

 

A sparkling rainbow on the stained-glass window,

It's a silver sheen on the kitchen sink,

The late September sunshine

It's a chameleon, I think."

 

Valerie Bloom, in "Let Me Touch the Sky"
