Color Slowly – Eden

Dedicated to SCA-JI

Colour Slowly – Eden
So Said the Flower – First:
A Petal forth shall be my Brush
The Zephyr as my Swerve –

In Irises, first Gardens –
Were Heaven – Human made
A Cornucopia Ebullient –
And Love – the Pastured Glade.

Flower met the Innocence
(A Mirror Bloom’d in Eye) –
Art affirmed sweet Nature,
And, Nature, in Art, died.
