                   Early One September Morn
                        by Duane Bristow
                        September 4, 1962

        The western mountains were yet to know,
        The warmth of the sun,
        And in the East the stratus hid,
        The entrance of his majesty.

        Yet, above them,
        (They were so still),
        The cirrus showed the white of silk.
        (For from the sky and from the cloud,
        The sun's glory reflected down.)

        Silvery jewels, they were set,
        Beneath a shroud of blue so pure.
        And yet, could even God devise,
        A blue so blue, A white so white?

        And beneath in the valley where shadows lay,
        From a hill I watched the morning unroll.
        And the September air, it was chill,
        At least chilly to one,
        So long used to the summer sun.

        The wind in the mountain,
        You could hear it blow,
        Foretelling of winter and snow.
        And the white, it was pure,
        And the blue, it was peace,
        And hoping someday,
        That all strife should cease,
        Here what I saw, I set down,
        That to him who could see,
        It could be found.
