Summer's Late Lavish Lace
Verdant green and glossy leaves,@08/11/2019 Carol Welch
summer's rich maturity
dewdrops form on rose and eaves,
spring flood memories obscurity
Virginia creeper on the fence;
grapevine's fruits now hang;
green, but look through foliage dense,
wild cucumber meringue.
The green with gold, brown interspersed:
hearty richness now finds place;
though goldenrod claims the universe,
dainty symmetry, Queen Anne's lace.
