Once upon a time there was a man who was alive.

Location: Hattiesburg, Mississippi, United States
St. Cuthbert and Disciples in a Boat


I composed this little poem after seeing a particularly striking hickory tree in full fall colour to-day.


Gold- green garbed and garnished- quick-
Gold tor grafted thrown to sky-loft
Sheen of sallow-light and columned gleam
Bright-borne against dulling wood and paling sky:

Gray bore graved from streeling gabbing bower
From damp earth delved drinks deep-
Lifts gold, greengold grown from green glaiking,
Clouds over in light, and light cowls and covers.

Kens rain and rainment- kept clear, strathy of light spreading
Gold stays, stays for a day: Then anew, afresh, newly burnished
Ah! but He re-news, brings-
Life anew perfected- all stays greengold ever.
