Wild Coreopsis
By Clinton Scollard (1860–1932)
 
A SEA of blossoms, golden as the glow
  Of morning sunlight on a wind-rocked bay,
  Beneath the breeze of this rare autumn day
Heaves in soft undulation to and fro;
Like incense, floating o’er the marsh below,        5
  Come fragrant odors of the late-mown hay;
  Beyond, in harmony of green and gray,
The tapering tamaracks tower in stately row.
 
And wading through the shimmering waves, with song
  Upon his lips, a fair-haired youth I see,        10
    Who swinges off the saffron blossom-bells:
Back roll the years,—a melancholy throng,—
  And I behold, in sea-girt Sicily,
    Theocritus amid the asphodels!
