Intimate Contact With Nature

Intimate Contact With Nature




Garden Poem of the Day

Color Notes
By Charles Wharton Stork

The brown of fallen leaves, 
The duller brown 
Of withered moss 
Stubble and bared sheaves, 
And pale light filtering down 
The fields across.

The gray of slender trees, 
The softer gray 
Of melting skies. 
What sobering ecstasies 
One drinks on such a day 
With chastened eyes!
