The subdued tones of an evening air
after a summer’s rain – gold-yellow
green-amber – shed with their
water-drops a colour tinged and mellow.
So too a soul after the summer’s
heat and the unsuspected rain –
two conflicting forces set
against weaken nature make it more mellow,
make it give out the true beauty enchained –
is richer thus for sorrow met.
