A vivid morn – rich vibrating green grass – slick sapling gleam white – shiny poplar – cat kin scales catch the sunlight turning the tree to a sprinkle of highlights -  A day on which brown wood sheds with yellow signs catch the eye – bleached shingles – sunlit tin cans boxes – green dotted lilac bushes – heat waves over rise in ground – 

Charles E. Burchfield, April 3, 1916
