Blight I

Pallor gold on the mountains;
Spring gold in the west;
Rosy gold on her away-turned face:
She is honey-tressed.

Amber sets the shadows;
The heifer’s withers gild;
Finches sparkle under leaves;
And the freshet’s filled.

Dionysus gifted me.
Gold fills her eyes like shells fill the sea.
Small flower in a garden, secret from me;
Primrose drifting on a saffron sea.

When yellow apples gorge the trees
And wheat locks drop in the light,
Search her umber smile, she smiles
The golden blight.

  1. Old poem.

    Turning things into gold with a touch–environmentally unsound and terribly, terribly isolating. Heavy metals.

    Watch out for those nickel-cadmium batteries or the newer nickel-metal hydride batteries in those hybrid vehicles, too.
