Light Magic
By Laura Sherry
From “Ridge People”

THE VALLEY curves like a bridge-span to the sky.
Blue granite stew-pans spill pink begonias along the road.
The town hall, blazing red, focuses the red stubble of fields
Which stretch away to gold-stacked corn-stalks,
And Wisconsin hills—piled cubes of red and yellow.        5
The sunset catches the landscape in layers.
Its amber floats a banner of pastels around the town.
