Water Colors And Sky Shade (From, Lead Sheets In July 2008) - Poem by Peter S. Quinn

Water colors and sky shade
Every tranquil to fulfill
That in hazy high is made
Of the moment's coming still
Living cloudy many ways
Through the distances a drifting
In the colors of lighted grays
Those in tincture now are shifting

Watery flow of rivers on
Blue in touch and waving light
From the moments never done
Of the sky in azure bright
Profound dark of a wielding deep
Nearly swart for eyes to free
Shadings mingling some to keep
From its rivulets to the sea

Greener colors from the green
Of the woods around the lane
Somber yellow and brown between
Much of reddish with its strain
Deep and moving leaves in breeze
Hazel routs to so many places
Air of the bracing the spirit frees
In every tincture’s falling graces
