I.
Air and sky are swathed in gold
 
Fold on fold,
 
Light glows through the trees like wine.
 
Earth, sun-quickened, swoons for bliss
 
'Neath his kiss,
 
Breathless in a trance divine.
 
Nature pauses from her task,
 
Just to bask
 
In these lull'd transfigured hours.
 
The green leaf nor stays nor goes,
 
But it grows
 
Royaler than mid-June's flowers.
