    Summer Music

    Summer is all a green air—
    From the brilliant lawn, sopranos
    Through murmuring hedges
    Accompanied by some poplars;
    In fields of wheat, surprises;
    Through faraway pastures, flows
    To the horizon’s blues
    In slow decrescendos.

    Summer is all a green sound—
    Rippling in the foreground
    To that soft applause,
    The foam of Queen Anne’s lace.
    Green, green in the ear
    Is all we care to hear—
    Until a field suddenly flashes
    The singing with so sharp
    A yellow that it crashes
    Loud cymbals in the ear,
    Minor has turned to major
    As summer, lulling and so mild,
    Goes golden-buttercup-wild.
