lupine

lupine

Shot gold, maroon, and violet, dazzling silver, emerald, fawn,
The earth's whole amplitude and Nature's multiform power consign'd for once to colors;
The light, the general air possess'd by them-- colors till now unknown,
No limit, confine-- not the Western sky alone-- the high meridian-- North, South, all,
Pure luminous color fighting the silent shadows to the last.
