California Sunrise
By W. D. Crabb
A CALIFORNIA sunrise, over-fair!
  See, scarlet-colored margins fringed with green!
Lo! fields of red and crimson bordered there!
  Here, blue expanses spanned with whitened sheen!
Lo! yellow banners floating in the air!        5
  Now, purple pastures sweet as eye hath seen!
Here, pink as blossoms mellow with delight!
O many hued, sky-ocean’s painted Bight,
Bent like Benin against the shore of night!
